GREEN Charter School5

I am so thankful to have found GREEN Charter School for my two children, especially my middle school student! We considered private school but were thrilled to earn a spot at GREEN. The setting for students is small, the principal (Mr. Adem) has a wonderful and achievable vision for success, and the teachers and staff are committed to making sure my children are both well-cared for and college-ready in a super competitive environment. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is serious about their kids' education and looking for an alternative to private school. You will be thankful you took the chance!
This school is perfect for my daughter! In a regular public school setting she would only get 1-2 hours per week of Gifted & Talented instruction. At GREEN every single core class is advanced level work for the Gifted & Talented students. The principal and staff are amazing and always willing to take time for you. Students receive free tutoring and clubs. Several staff members are DUKE TIP mentors as well. I can't wait to see what the future brings at GREEN!!!!!
Go GREEN!!! I believe things work in mysterious ways. I found out about GREEN Charter from another student--over hearing her conversation with her mother about how much she loved this school. I was amazed by the enthused young lady. She (the student) spoke highly of this school. Enduring such positive feedback from a student about her school and teachers, meant a lot to me. I decided to register my child after witnessing the lack of academic challenges at a previous school. My child now attends GREEN and loves it. There's structure, discipline, high expectations, and encouragement from the principle and teachers to keep the students engaged and motivated. They really focus on academic growth, and I have seen an improvement in my child since transferring schools. I made a great choice thanks to the GREEN Charter student and her mother.
This has been the absolute best thing I could have done for my 3rd grader. This is his second year at GREEN and to say he progressed leaps and bounds last year is an understatement! He went from having a hard time with his reading comprehension to being in the honors class this year! His self-confidence has also grown tremendously! Keep up the excellent work!
This school is serious about preparing the students to be tomorrow leaders. They aggressive learning program,the clubs that are availabe to the children at such an early age helps to get a head start on ensuring the children become well rounded. And the focus on green energy helps them to become caring and responsible citizens.I think these students will stand out among students. It's part of the culture here that's why if needed tutoring is available on a weekly basis if needed. I am expecting greatness to come out of this school.and I know I want be disappointed.
We are very please with this school. I researched the different public and charter middle schools in the area and found Green Charter early on in their enrollment. I researched the principal and his prior experience with Upstate New York and Jacksonville, FL charter school successes and knew this would be a great opportunity school for our son. To top it off they do elementary too so we were able to put our daughter in the school keeping our kids together. We really like the smaller class and having uniforms. It makes life easier. I have had the best interaction ever with the teachers not to say that the teachers at our prior school weren't good. Very positive environment that works to keep the parents informed. My kids are really into this year more than ever and they don't seem frustrated but I know they getting challenged.
