I'm a student at general Greene elementary This school gives us kids opportunities that others won't get until high school! This is my last year in general Greene because I'll be going to middle school. Middle schools love students who came from general Greene because they are more advanced in science and have a more touch with technology.you are of course on common core which almost every state in America is on accept 2 . But general Greene elementary is more advanced and this is a magnet school which is more than a elementary school . I must warn you , you do science projects which are a stress on 3rd 4th and 5th new comers. But the teachers will give you a helping and guiding hand of science fair, it's a real stress for 3rd 4th and 5th because general Greene goes on camping trips that lay right along on science fair testing, then you do ect. The overnight camping trips are very fun. In camp Cheerio YMCA sponsored camp you climb a mountain which is 4-5 hours joy. Your child will have lots of field trips and fun adventures. The teachers are very funny especially mrs.rogers. I hope you enrolled your kid and I hope they get accepted. - student

We have been at General Greene for two years and have been more than pleased. It is a caring and challenging learning environment and we are thrilled with the teachers and their efforts. Our child is happy each day and enthusiastic about school. The teachers know her by name in most every grade and there is a high percentage of parent involvement. This school cares about its students and the value of a top notch education!

I have a son in the upper grades. He has been bullied by one child for the last three years. The school policy on bullying is very weak. There are several known children with persistent behavior issues who are not actively disciplined. With the current events involving bullying one would think a more aggressive stance would be taken. One teacher has addressed the bullying topic with her class by sharing the story of the girl who committed suicide. I only hope administration acts before we have a tragedy at General Greene or an active investigation like at East MIddle.

I think the current focus is on the latest program and gadgets and how to 'look' like a good school. What is unfortunately lost in all this is the children. This is not a child centered school. This is a technology centered school that likes to see itself on the news.

My son has been going to General Greene for 2nd and 3rd grade. The teachers are amazing. Not just his 'regular' teacher, but all the specialists as well! When we went to Open House to see who his 3rd grade teacher would be, the PE teacher said hi to him, and used his NAME! Not just a universal hi, but a personal one. Every teacher seems to know all the kids by name, and the specials have to teach all 5 grades! My son also has ADHD and Tourette's, and not ONCE has he been labeled a 'problem child'. Each teacher recognizes his strengths and understands his 'problems' and helps him work through them. I couldn't ask for a better school. I just wish General Greene would be a K-12 school so he would never have to leave!

Its a good school I think that they push the kids a little hard algebra and geometry in the 2nd grade is a little too much. Pushing dont get me wrong is good sometimes but if they are doing a more difficult subject and then you give them the subject that is supposed to be on their level of course they get confused.

After 2 unhappy years at another Guiford County public school, we are thrilled with the environment at General Greene after 2 years. My sons level of confidence, excitement about learning and educational experience is so positive. A super Science & Technology Magnet school. The teachers, administrators and parent involvement is equal or surpasses that many people pay big money for in private schools. Lots of hands on experiences! Second to none!

My daughter is presently in the 3rd grade this year at General Greene. She has been a student here since Kindergarten. Just when I think she'll never have a teacher as good as the last one, she enters the next grade and the teacher quality is incredible. And, along with the high quality of education, you'll feel like you're in a time warp if you spend any time with the students in the school. They are some of the most respectful, well-mannered individuals you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. My child's manners, self-confidence, and willingness to help others has blossomed along with her mind in this school. I always encourage my friends with younger children to take a good long look at a magnet school like General Greene.

I have one child in second grade at General Greene now. We love the school!! The teachers have a genuine desire to help children learn, and they do it in very creative ways. They take many field trips, almost all relate back to science or technology and the kids just think they're having fun. That's they best way to learn. Fun, enjoyable and without the added stress.

My son is enrolled at General Greene and I wouldn't change that for anything. The school is wonderful, the kids learn on their level instead of being pushed onto someone else's level. The staff are all wonderful and spend so much time helping the children, it's just different from any school I've ever seen.
