The school has great potential, but like others said, the current administration MUST go!!. Unfortunately for us, we will not see that change, we are moving out of the area to a different school district. We had planned to leave in 3 years when the oldest is high school age, however, we simply can not stand the current administration. They treat the parents and the children with no respect. Their attitude is everyone should feel lucky to have their children there and do not dare raise any issues. I can't wait to hear when they are all fired in the future, the day is coming. You simply can not treat families the way they do and get away with it. Good luck to all the families left behind, I hope things will improve in the near future.

I have two children at Green Woods Charter School and so far we have had a great experience. Every teacher we have had has been wonderful. My kids are flourishing academically and socially. Like everything in life there is room for improvement but overall it has been a good experience.

Thanks to the other parents that do not just sit back and let the school dictate policies without being fair.

The teachers have the potential to be effective however the lack of support interferes with what could be a great situation of learning.

The amount of homework is not an issue. Homework is just to enhance the skill.

The school has the potential to do so however it needs to get rid of the current administration. They are not compassionate, unfair and talk to both children and parents as if they do not matter.

Lack of respect is shown as the voice of children gets drowned out by the adults.

How could you show compassion, care and empathy when the students are not given an opportunity to explain what is going on. It is whatever the teacher says.

Unfortunately, the school officials (Dean of Students and Dean of students and faculty) could care less about what is going on with the students. They are one sided and do not get a full view of what is going on,.

I have really tried to work with this school. I did not read the other comments prior to sending my children there. Needless to say, the comments are TRUE. The staff is VERY disrespectful and lack professionalism.
