Greenwood Hills is an excellent school!!! Diversity is welcomed at this campus. Great teachers, staff and PTA! The teachers genuinely care about the students. My children are challenged in their classrooms and have done exceptional well on state assessment tests. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Our PTA is continuing to grow and support GHE and the community.
Greenwood Hills is a WONDERFUL school! My son is a 1st grader and LOVES GHE, especially the afterschool PACE program which is probably THE BEST in ALL of RISD. The teachers strive to meet the diverse needs of all students and lovingly guide them to achieve their very best. The teachers put in COUNTLESS hours working for the benefit of the students and genuinely care about the well-being of all children. You won't find a more passionate, dedicated staff or principal. Ms. Massey-Stinnett is a genuine student advocate who strives to do what's best for kids at all times. Our PTA is TOP NOTCH and puts on all kinds of great activities all throughout the year. We love GHE!
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.
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.
