Greenwood Hills Elementary Schools is a hidden treasure in Richardson, TX. Diversity is one of the biggest asset here. Students receive an extremely high quality education as well as a truly beneficial multicultural experience. This develops them into very well rounded global citizens at an early age. School leadership is outstanding. Teachers are talented and have a passion for their work. The after school PACE program may be the best in the Dallas area. Parent involvement is relatively low compared to nearby schools, but the PTA has grown steadily over the past few years. We intentionally moved to this neighborhood from a nearby neighborhood with a higher rated school. We did this because we felt that GHE would offer a better overall educational experience for our children.
Great neighborhood elementary school, diverse staff and student population. The building may be older but the educational opportunities there are first class. Richardson Independent School District schools rank nationwide.
I have had many grandchildren go through this school, never in my life have i experienced teachers like some of my grandchildren have had. Those sixth grade teachers allow the students to be teenages and really know how to teach them. my grandson and some of his crazy friends ALL got commended on their sixth math TAKS test after almost failing the year before, now that is something amazing going on in that classroom. Thank-you greenwood hills for having such influential teachers...finally teachers that understand the grade level they teach!!
The staff at Greenwood Hills are some of the finest educators in Richardson. They are creative and let our children have real-life experiences. My child has learned to love writing in 4th grade and we can't thank the wonderful teachers enough! We're looking forward to the rest of our education at GHE and wouldn't think twice to go anywhere else!
Parents should be very concerned about the 'goings on' at this school! Most be shocked as was our family! The principal and most of the teachers are very rude, unprofessional, and downright mean to the children. Please think twice before you enroll or re-enroll your children at this school.
I've been very impressed with the programs available to my child academically and extracurricular. The art and music teachers are some of the finest. There is a core group of parents, ever-growing, that make a wonderful difference in the lives of all the children at GHE. Futher, the teachers and staff are pleasant, competent, and a joy to work with.
