This college prepratory school is outstanding. Honor, pride and comraderie are the norm and the teachers, as well as the headmaster, are outstanding and always look out for their students. The classes are not overfilled and drugs, bullies, etc. are not tolerated. Does your child require a lock for school? Not needed at Greenfield - student lockers don't have doors and the 'Honesty is the best policy' practice is instilled in every student. If you're looking for a good school I'm sure you can find plenty; however, if you're looking for a school that outshines all others look no more - you've found it!

This is the school you want your child/children in! The qualtiy of education is outstanding as well as the teachers. The basics are well covered but it's the intangibles that make this school really excel. The children have a collective sense of pride, are expected to do well and really seem to enjoy going. It's also an environment you'll be glad to leave your child in - no gangs, no drugs, no bullies! They have an honor system each child adheres to and there are no locks anywhere for the childrens belongings. If you're looking for a school in this area, look no more, you've found it!

My son is only in preschool at Greenfield, however we have already seen enough during this year to know that this is where we want him to continue to be through out his school years. There is a very welcoming family feel at Greenfield, not only from the teachers and staff, but from the students as well. Anytime you are there you can't help but notice how well behaved all the kids are and how quiet and peaceful the school is. Classes are kept small and there is plenty of personal attention given to each and every student. No matter the cost, we will do whatever needed to keep our son here through the rest of his preschool years and into his elementary and upper school years!

While this school is expensive, my daughter is flourishing in every way. The classes are small, and the teachers and administration are caring, and more than qualified. I will do what ever it takes to keep her there so that she will not have to deal with an abundance of gangs, drugs, and bullying. Additionally, while it is a secular school, Christian core values are respected and promoted.

We have been part of Greenfield School for 15 years since moving to Wilson, NC. I could never have asked for a better overall experience for my children than I have received at Greenfield. My oldest son graduated in 2002 after attending since the 1st grade and had many, many opportunities he probably would not have had in public school. He attended Summer Ventures and Governor's School the summers of 2000 and 2001. My youngest son is currently a junior and also was able to attend Summer Ventures this past summer. Not only do they receive the absolute best academics Eastern North Carolina has to offer, but have been part of (and have been able to participate in) an extremely successful athletic program through soccer, basketball and baseball. The teachers and coaches could not be better. 150 words could never explain the quality of life at this school.

Excellent school. I have sons in the upper school(11 grade) and Kindergarten. This is a small school 2 Kindergarten classes, 13 students in each both have a teacher abd an assistant teacher. The total upper school has 75 students. Parents, teachers are involved it is a real family. For the last several years every graduate has been accepted by the first college on their list. The sports programs are excellent, the teams have won their conference sportsmanship award almost every year. The Soccer Team has won the 1A NC State the past four years. The Basketball team won it in 2000,2001 and were second in 2003.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
