Greenwood has an awesome principal! She's all that a principal should be and more. However, sometimes teachers feel the need to take a personal approach when dealing with their students as opposed to a professional approach. Make sure you communicate with your child or children daily. .You should know everything that goes while at school. Sit them down and question them. Ask specific questions about their entire day and most of all ask them how their teacher treated them! Children are very forgiving. Often they leave out very important factors that involve poor choices of school teachers and faculty. As parents we must get involved and stay involved. A teacher chose to force my son to walk 6 laps and gave him silent lunch all because he ran with a few other students towards his school bus one afternoon. Something all kids have done at some point or another. She also fabricated a story stating my child failed to turn in homework on numerous occasions.. Not true! Interim didn't reflect any issues with classwork or homework at all!! Not to mention I look at his homework EVERY EVENING! I called and questioned the teacher referencing the allegations. She admitted to them then hung up in my face! I could add more but Ill leave things as is! I will say that I have removed my child from the originating class for the 2015-2016 school year and he has now been placed in a much more suitable environment.

My school is Awesome! The teachers and staff are the best ! My kids are excited to go to school each day and look forward to seeing their peers and teachers. This lets me know that my kids are in a safe learning environment. I love when my kids come home and can teach me something new that they learned that day. I'm extremely happy with Greenwood Elementary as far as my kids education and learning is concerned.

This school is amazing. I share custody with my ex husband and now live in Hanvor. Had she been going to any of the other schools in Henrico I would have pulled her out right away. However, Greenwood is a wonderful school and have staff that truly care for there students! This school deserves anything that can help make them even better.

The teachers are very attentive and patient with the youngest children. Our granddaughter will be entering 2nd grade and is looking forward to it.

The school definitely lacks communication. Leadership and parent involvement are disorganized. There is no school website or Facebook page, a necessity these days with social media. There are some excellent teachers who are very caring and organized. We have had a great experience with our teacher this year. I think the school needs to move with the times a bit, keep parents informed, and the school would much better serve our children!

This school lacks organization and leadership! I'm not surprised to see the test scores and GreatSchools rating drop. The poor communication is probably a leading factor for the lowered rating. We never know about happenings around the school until the day prior to the event and/or assignment... makes it hard for a working parent to plan. On top of this the website is rarely updated . events from January are still listed at the end of February. We have a kindergartener at Greenwood and have seen her digress in all areas; academic, behavioral, etc. since starting here... it is sad when a daycare is more successful at teaching. I understand that some of these issues could be on a micro level (our teacher) however I do believe it starts at the top and that there is a serious lack of leadership. I have not seen much interaction between, the principal/teachers and principal/parents. Henrico is known for their great schools and this is one they should take a serious re-evaluation of before it s too late (and parents should demand this)! We will not be returning to Greenwood next year.

The principal is non chalant and also the teachers are very non chalant.( fifth grade teachers). They do not call you when you're child is falling below, or even try and offer they're help at the end of the day. When you do call to see how your child is doing they have a meeting to go to constantly and never set up a time for you all to meet. As a parent, we not able to be with our children 24/7 like in the past when women did not have a job. Parents are working these days and we pay our tax dollars for non caring teachers, who just brush our children off and is too busy to bring this to an attention of a guidance counselor themselves. My child is just another number in this school, they ACT like they want to help but there actions tell a different story. When they do finally talk to a parent they are very rude and disrespectful.

Not sure why the rating is not a 10 since there are no reviews. My review would be about our great faculty, principal, and students. But I would also have to say that the designer of our school had not only student learning in mind but also thought deeply about teachers and the staff in putting this school together. I find myself at my desk realizing from time to time that how great the rooms are to be in because of the light from the outside and the way the light fixtures bounce the light on the ceiling that seems to make it easier to read textbooks and see the laptop screens.

I can't say enough great things about Greenwood Elementary. My daughter started KG in 2004, the first year the school opened. We're moving and very disappointed to leave this school. The building is beautifully built with all of the latest technology, very clean and organized. There are quite a few after school activities (drama, mad science, chess club, etc.) currently and more to come available in the coming years I'm sure. It was a slow start to the PTA (now established)and activites but the parental involvement is excellent. The principal is wonderful and I have had excellent experience with discipline at this school. Situations are addressed and resolved immediately and the staff is very involved with parents and students. Every teacher I've dealt with has been exceptional and my daughter has really enjoyed them. Parent/teacher communication is excellent. Overall I think this is a top notch school and wouldn't hesitate to reccomend it.
