It is an excellent school, which encourages children to be better, not just in the academic area, but on values and principles. I feel very fortunate that my children are part of this prestigious school.
GA has been a great school for my kids! Provides a safe environment and my kids are excelling academically. Test scores rank higher than other local schools. Teachers are easy to talk to and email back promptly. Kids are not allowed to fall between the cracks.
This school was a tragic experience for my children, the first years had been great w/ a remarkable learning experience and great disoplin. However soon to come the school rankings had dropped tremendously. W/ my kids coming home daily crying because of bullying and especially favoritism through, the children who give money to the school, race (which the school is no where near diverse what so ever!!! I would worry about how your kids would feel their and to be honest I don't see what the diffrence is between that school and public school. I'd actually say the public schools are better. My children now attend public school and have enjoyed every second. If I could give no star for this school I surly would!!
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.
