Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is not tolerated and instead, what might be difficult circumstances, are used as learning opportunities for the boys. Creating a community is important and each person's role in that community is emphasized.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Dr. Caryl Frankenberger took the reins over a year ago and has brought new ideas to the school that seem to be well received by both staff and students. She is a collaborative leader and brings out the best in her team.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The importance of community is an over riding aspect of Greenwood and the boys are a brotherhood. There are moments to be sure but every situation is approached as an opportunity for development.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are highly trained in the most current research regarding LD and are able to integrate approaches to learning that are effective.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is a challenge and the teachers are creative in finding solutions that work for our son.

Our son has attended Greenwood for over 2 years and we could not be more satisfied with the level of care and the quality of the education. Our son's learning differences are approached with enormous creativity and skill. Clearly the faculty is focused on assisting the boys to reach their potential. Our son has confidence surrounding reading and writing that we never thought possible. The faculty and administration team have proven their abilities meeting the needs of teenage boys in a holistic way; including as it relates to day to day living. I was surprised to read the comments below regarding admin and meds because in our experience, we have had only positives around these issues. In every aspect of our son's life, we have worked as a team with the Administration and we are delighted with the results. You could not find a better school or a school that cares more about the boys and their development. The geographic location is also wonderful and the extracurricular programming takes advantage of all that the outdoors have to offer.

I have gone to greenwood for many years. I love this school. And because I love this school I must tell you, do not send your boys here. The current greenwood administrative team have created a hostile environment. Boys may not question their meds without fear of being punished for doing so, even if the meds are causing a serious issue. The staff tolerate bullying from favorite students even when a fifth of the population is reporting it. Reports from advisors are often in accurate due to a lack of communication between staff. Don't send your boys here until this has changed. Greenwood has hope but it is being poisoned by toxic administrative staff.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The school tolerates bullying of homosexuals, and those with less money.


Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
The school ignores many aspects of the students ie. Depression.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The current administrative team is incompetent. They will lie just to prove they are right.
