I like that it is a relatively small (~500 students) school. I think the administration listens to parents and the teachers seem to really care about the kids. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. I like that teachers that I don't even know greet my child by name. The facilities are old and worn. It will be nice when the economy improves and some structural improvements can be made.
My son went to Green Elementary on suggestion from his tutor (he has an IEP for reading and writing) for his fifth grade year. Green has an exceptional special education department with caring and knowledgeable teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty. This was his first experience in public school ever and it was a pleasant one for him. I liked the smaller class size (there were 21 kids in his class) and the year around schedule. He was on Track two and his teacher always had interesting elements to add to her subject material. The principal and vice principal were always accessible. The front office was always very helpful.
My son is in 1st grade and has had a wonderful time so far. I was nervous b/c people had said the community at Green had gotten lazy, but that has not been my experience. Both his teachers were great and he has learned so much. The principal knew his name after only a few weeks and he was out to greet everyone often. I am pleased I chose to stay here.
I am new to area and love this school. Teachers call my child by name and she is not in their class or grade. It's warm, friendly, and has a standard of academic excellence. My child really enjoys Green Year Round. She is in 5th grade...will be sad to leave such a wonderful environment.
Green is an A++ school. My children have been in the year round school system at Green since 1996. They are now in 5th and 8th grades. The parent involvement is incredible at this school. We have had 100% participation in the PTA each year. The PTA provides family involement activities several times a year with activities such as family game night, our annual staff talent show, and a fall festival. The staff is top notch and teach the Wake County curriculum with the most up to date methods. This school has a wonderful music and art program. The PTA also provides a Cultural Arts program to educate the children, incorporating dance and music from other cultural backgrounds. I would highly recommend Green Year-Round and only wish there were a high school so that my kids could continue on the same schedule.
I have 2 children at Green, a third grader and a kindergartener. We are winding up our first year at Green and couldn't be happier. I feel like we won the lotto getting into this school because if we weren't able to get our of our base school my kids would either be in private school or be home schooled. We really like the year round calendar. We've been able to take vacations on off seasons and miss the crowds and high $$ of prime times of the year. The downside is that the other kids in the neighborhood are in traditional schools. Mrs. Chaffee's Kindergarten class on track 2 is AWESOME! My other child has a teacher just out of school this year and we are pretty happy with her too. The parental involvement in this school is outstanding, much better than my past experience. Great school overall!
I have a kindergartner at Green and I love this school. It is a year round school so you have to adjust the the calender but it makes family vacations a lot easier. There is a lot of parent involvment, the PTA is not overbearing like some schools and the effort put forward by the school to keep parents involved is great.
