Greenwood is awful,adminstration is very rude no matter when you go in there,teachers are allowed to verbally bully the students there,starting as low as kindergarten,have witnessed it time after time.unless you go visit or have lunch with a child you may never know this. Principal has been told of behavior but has done nothing.guess when you have been teaching in the same school for so long they allow it to happen, the teacher's aide are worse then the teachers,just unreal how things are poor students who dont deserve to be subjected to this

Yes there have been changes at this school for the past 4 years, but most of them are for the better. This school is striving to keep up with the latest research in order to prepare all students for a better education. Change can be difficult. I've had 1 child go through this school from k-6th and I currently have one there now. I am satisfied with the education and the faculty. I also believe being an involved parent makes a huge difference!

I have two children attending this school and have been very dissatisfied with the facilities as well the administration. My child's teachers do not seem to communicate well with us as parents. There have been notes and papers sent home by the teachers themselves with incorrect spelling, punctuation and grammar. What is scary to me is that these are the people that are supposed to be educating my children. The staff seems to be unhappy with their principal and I think that reflects in their ability to teach. I think this school is a good example of why there are so many private schools in South Carolina. If I could afford to send my children to private school I definitely would.

I was very reluctant concerning allowing my daughter to attend this school because of the negative publicity. She s been enrolled at Greenwood for about a month, her teacher is very personable and accessible. My daughter is comfortable and enjoying herself. I don t have any negative comments. The classroom is definitely larger than what we re used to, but the main problem I notice is the behavior of the kids. I ve attended one school function and volunteered in the classroom, the lack of discipline in the kids were baffling. I just want to remind parents that discipline starts in the home. We have to do our job, so that the teachers can focus on their job.

I am not happy with this school at all. This is the 4th yr my child has been attending. I feel that there are plenty of improvements needed in this school starting with the principal and staff.
