Unfortunately, this school has changed considerably in the last two years. They are overcrowded and the demographics have spiraled. It seems as if they are taking in a lot of students from out of district.
I have highly recommended this school in the past and now I warn people to look for other options. They are very disorganized, the school is filthy - even my child complains of how dirty the bathrooms always are. Some good teachers and front office nice, but they are up against a lot of challenges.
Parking and pick up are a mess and they won't do anything about it. My son has had lice 2x and no notification is sent (which I believe is standard protocol now, but come on!) Communication with parents is lacking, complaints to the principle and VP are unaddressed, the list goes on.
If you want quality education for your child and a place where you can feel proud of sending your child to - this is definitely not the school.
My child went to Dr. Green for two years, and he loved it, and so do I. It has wonderful teachers, very commitment, the class size is about 17 children, and students have a lot of attention. The area where the school is located is amazing (like private), with a wonderful view of the mountains, so clean and beautiful. My son had an experience of life going to this school; he learned English so quickly and made a lot of good friends. Teachers make a lot emphasis in reading, also in the other subjects I saw important development. Students had daily PE class, and had orchestra for fifth graders.
Dr. Green's administration (Princ. & VP) is very distant. They don't stand outside to greet the kids or parents. When you walk into the office the staff is frequently un-friendly. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
My children attended Dr.Green for almost three years. We had a wonderful time. The teachers and staff are great. My daughter has dyslexia and the teachers and staff took measures to get her the help she required, she then made it to honor roll. Thank you everyone at Dr.Green for your help and support.
My children have all three(3) attended and presently attend this amazing school. The GT program is stellar and the principle, staff, educators and janitors are all very dedicated to the learning and well being of our children. Dr. Green has a private school feel nestled on a mountain off festival on buckley street.
