I absolutely love this school. My parents moved our family here when I was in high school. I always dreamed of going back "home", but the teachers at this school truly are amazing. My son is now in third grade and absolutely loves his teacher. He has loved every teacher he has had so far. Greenbrier is an amazing school and I thank heaven every day that this new zoning plan does not effect him. The staff here is wonderful. I don't think I could find a better school for my children.
Greenbrier Elementary is a good school. Leadership is kind, fair and addresses issues in the best interest of students. Teachers work well together in grade level teams to insure best teaching methods are applied and student growth is the goal. The PTO is strong and present; monthly meetings are held. There are a few clubs including Jr. Honors and many ways to get involved. AR is addressed well and reading is important school-wide. Communication between school and home is another strong point. The school is fresh and clean (expect the boys restrooms). Parents feel welcomed.
My children came from another district which is considered elite in middle Tennessee. That was wrong! They are learning so much more at GES and they love their teachers. They are having to adjust to the course work but the teachers are so readily available to help. The communication has been outstanding.
This school is very welcoming to parents. We were new to the school last year . I asked the office staff what, if any, volunteer jobs i could do. I was given plenty to do! I always feel welcome there. I did not like not being able to drop my child off at her classroom, but I also understand, there is no way that the number of parents at he school could park and go inside the school. With over 800 students, there simply is no space. I would ay to those who complain about no parental involvement, just ask. The teachers have all been very communicative and interested in my child's adjustment to a new school. .
I attended Greenbrier Elementary and am pleased that my children attend the same wonderful school as my husband and I. This school is part of a wonderful and caring community that has lots of pride in its young Bobcats. We did experience a little bump in the road, but thanks to an administration change this year, our school is again one of the best! Many of the teachers and staff are from this community, as well as the current administrator. The compassion and respect they show the students is remarkable. I am proud to be a part of the Bobcat community!
I have been very pleased with my child's education at Greenbrier Elementary. My child's teachers are excellent, and he has always had very good teachers. I believe the administration and staff are making learning a top priority. I wouldn't want him to go anywhere else.
I have one child who spent about 2 months there and we yanked him out because we feel his needs were not being met. Some members of the staff were snappy and aides were unhelpful and uncaring. The classroom seemed to be terribly understaffed.
This is my child's second year at this school, and I feel unwelcome anytime I go to the school. The staff is rude and doesn't make you feel like you are even in existence. They only reward the students whose parents donate money for whatever they are collecting for the week. good behavior and good grades are hardly even acknowledged but , if your child makes on elittle mistake they are going to cause a big fuss. I hope we move next year so my child can go to a diff school.
After our child attended private school we decided to try public schools and we enrolled our child at Greenbrier Elementary. I have never been so disappointed in a school. There is no parent involvement. They don't want you there. I was not able to walk my child to class. They choose hand sanitizer instead of soap & water after using the bathroom. I never once seen any art papers & the only song my child learned was about the school rules. Our child came from a school where every child was involved in every activity, at GES they pick and choose based on grades and behavior. Also, your child gets rewarded for making donations to the school or other charitable organizations. What kind of message is that sending your child? They don't keep there doors locked which is a safety concern. My child was very unhappy and will not be returning.
