Greensboro Academy is by far the best school in Greensboro. As a parent, I feel like I am always welcome and often invited to be a part of my child's education. The office staff is beyond excellent. Parents and students just love them. GA's approach to teaching and curriculum is beyond words. My children have thrived at this school and my questions, concerns and suggestions are always addressed. Our PTO goes over and above and I am thankful for them and the dedicated parents that volunteer so much of their time to be sure our school stays number one.
If you want your 6 year old to run because they do not have a tucked in shirt then this is the school for you. They believe that a child blurting out is punishable by laps around the playground during recess. While this is hard to believe in the age of bullying awareness, I guess a child can only be humiliated by the school. As you can tell, we left once we became aware of it. The teachers are good, it is sad the administration supports this POLICY. Shocking.
Greensboro Academy is the best school in Greensboro. I am thankful everyday that we were lucky enough to have our children attend this school. The teachers are wonderful. Great curriculum and the parent involvement can not be beat.
Academic excellence - a safe, nurturing environment to accelerate our son's education. He has attended for three years now and the results speak for themselves. You could not find a finer institution, public or private, to send your own child.
We love Greensboro Academy! I am so thankful every day that we have this alternative to our neighborhood schools. We have 3 children in GA spanning from elementary to middle school and are working on our 5th year. The parental involvement is unbeatable and contributes to the overall family-like environment. I love being a volunteer! My children are challenged acadmically, encouraged to be their best, and will leave the school leaps and bounds ahead of their peers from other schools. The staff is wonderful - so loving and helpful to the kids and parents. The teachers truly love teaching and make the kids feel excited to learn. I am so thankful for our GA experience!
I am a former student at G,A and went through 9 yrs at that school and I think it is one of the best schools around, it provides great education and enviroment.
We are fortunate to have our Kindergartener at Greensboro Academy! Students can learn in this environment, largely because of the moral focus, discipline, and parental involvement that is required. Best of all our son is happy to go to school everyday.
Greensboro Academy is excellent. We moved out of the area for about 3 years and could not wait to get our daughters back into the school. Our oldest is now at Northern High and clearly ahead of many of her peers. Our youngest is in 5th grade at GA and is doing so much better then when we lived in Phoenix, AZ.
We love Greensboro Academy! My daughter started Kindergarten there last year and can't wait for 1st grade to begin. A high level of learning, as well as discipline being maintained.
My daughter is in the 3rd grade and is really thriving here at Greensboro Academy. The curriculum is challenging, however her teacher makes learning fun.
My daughter is in the 3rd grade at Greensboro Academy, and we are so pleased. The curriculum is challenging, however, her teacher makes learning fun, and she IS learning.
First rate school. Superior to nearly all the Guilford County schools. Curriculum is much more extensive than in the county schools. Far better behavior demanded of the students and much, much, much more parent involvement.
My two children have been with the academy since its begining. Their development is without a doubt the best I could ever ask for, they enjoy the enviroment and really love the teachers that they have had in the past years. I highly recommed this school to everyone.
Thank goodness for Greensboro Academy. Our two youngest have been there since it opened. Without it, we would have been left with no affordable alternative to home schooling them since the schools they would have otherwise been assigned to are notorious for poor performance (due to lack of parental commitment and abysmal leadership from the Guilford County Schools central office). The curriculum is first rate and the parents are truly involved in their children's education.
Greensboro Academy is a wonderful place to build strong young minds and nurture knowledge as well as morals. The staff is great and make teaching students a personal experience. All 3 of my guys benefit from being there.
