This school is settled in a narrow corner of the world. Acceptance from teachers is based upon your last name and Greenridge address. Nepotism is encouraged as a Greenridge teacher had her daughter hired this year. Kids who know the mother-daughter tag team are permitted to call both teachers by their first names. Such children are have free reign to bully fellow students and disregard class rules with no reprocution. Whatever you do, don't try to stand up for your child who us being bullied, because the Greenridge girls take care of their own and will take it out on your child. The education is sub-par and for a catholic school, the teachers possess no value. I regret sending my children to the school. Please think twice about this school unless you are already part of the gang.

This school is fine for younger students but by the time they reach about fifth grade everything goes down. Teachers are very prejudiced to certain students. A lot of bullying goes on but teachers ignore it. Students can't do well when distracted by mean students and teachers do nothing. Some,not all, teachers do not properly post on edline. Teachers do not inform parents if student isnt working well. I can't believe young catholic girls could be so mean. I often wonder if there parents know what they're saying to other girls. As a parent you. Can't say anything or else your child gets bullied even more. I wouldn't send a dog here. There are currently 5 family members here. Only the girls are having trouble

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.
