LOVE LOVE LOVE this school! We moved from out of state and my daughter has been with this school for almost 2 years. Prior to enrolling her and moving, I did my research and we decided on Green Acres. It's been one of our best decisions! I can't speak highly enough of the staff, ALWAYS upbeat and the kids are greeted (as soon as they step out of the car) every morning with smiles and warm welcomes. 3rd thru 5th grader get a knuckle bump and encouragement AND the door held for them EVERY morning by the principal!!! My daughters overall academics have improved greatly since her former school... which was rated "excellent!" One of the highest ratings in that state to get, but it still does not compare with Green Acres. Everyone will have a different experience with any school, all children AND parents are different. For us, it's been AWESOME and I'm very proud that my daughter was able to settle in and enjoy the smaller school atmosphere. Keep up the great work Green Acres!!

My daughter has attended Green acres for many years. There have been small incidents, but overall she has had a safe learning environment. I would have liked more communication with the teachers when my daughter was struggling on an off through her years. If this were not her last year I would move her to a different school because of a recent incident where her teacher took her phone, made her unlock it, and went through the contents even though she didn't even have it out. I would have been just fine with her taking the phone, but there was no probable cause to go through her personal information. The teacher and the principal both support this action afterwards. This was very disappointing. Every persons 4th amendment rights are important. I absolutely expect the facility that is educating my child to support the United States constitution and enforce its importance and legitimacy to the children they are teaching.

My son has ADHD and the teachers ,staff,and Principal, treated him so kind. That he didn't have the fear of being bad. They gave him a chance. When his other schools only maid him out to be a bad kid. Thank you Green Acres.

I love the school, the teachers, and the principle. The are trying to promote parent involvement, but still needs some new perspectives on it. It is coming along though. Change takes time, but they are really working hard to do the right things. The resources are ridiculously tight in every school right now! Parent are vital to the schools success!

I am happy with the way they are incorporating the Montessori idea into the regular classroom settings, which has always seemed to be a model which would provide the best education for the students (of the models I know of).

I would give Green Acres a B in ratings, or 4 stars. I am a sub at the school and love being there. The teachers are great, the kids are good kids and the atmosphere is upbeat and mostly fun and positive.


Posted April 10, 2008

Excellent building leadership. The teachers are positive and work hard to meet my child's needs. Overall, the climate is frinedly and helpful. I would love to see more parent volunteers help out at events, PTC, etc...

The special education (Team Room) is way overloaded, to many needs to be filled with amount of help available. Poor communication with parents. The Tag Program is really good though. The teacher really goes above and beyond.
