Principal has very poor people skills and very impolite when it comes to dealing either with a students needs or parents/families needs or issues. I see why a lot of parents home school their children. Teachers are great, but they need a new principal!!
The school has an ineffective principal who was unsupportive to our struggling and broken family. An off year in life turned into an unforgiving and cold response from the school. The legislated plans set up for the kids who medically challenged were not followed up on as they should have been. The bullying that was happening to the kids was also not followed up on, promises made to parents did not happen, and it got so bad that the children were taken out of the school when nothing was done repeatedly. Our kids were not the only ones bullied at the school and just this past year, we know they lost children from three families plus ours due to bullying and an unresponsive and wimpy administration and principal. These children are now all in private schools which is a disgrace since we still pay taxes to have our children in "well-administered" public schools which this one is not. The principal should not e the administer of anything having to do with children. She is unrelatable and stand-offish and has exhibited consistent poor decision-making to numerous to list here.
Have loved this school from day 1. My children are upcoming 1st and 4th graders. The staff has always been very welcoming and caring. Speaking to the teachers if there are concerns have always been easy and quick to respond. We feel incredibly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school!
My son has attened greenfield since first grade and is now in 5th. It is the best school in Botetourt county hands down. The staff is amazing and the education is well rounded. They learn so much more than reading and math. They learn about life and other cultures and the arts. They learn about charecter and responsibilty.
I have 2 children attending this school. In 2nd grade and K. I love this school. The teachers and the staff are always willing to do whatever it takes to help my children. As long as any other children... I would def recommend this school to anyone!
Greenfield elementary school is a wonderful elementary school. We have a new principal, which my children and i love. One of my children has a few learning disabilities. They have a great understanding concept on l.D. Students and how to teach and help them not feel 'seperate'. I woudl recommend this school to anyone. We have enjoyed every year of our children being there. The teachers that we have had are exceptional. The music program is especially fun. (We are music people) the front office staff are great. Willing to help with anything. Also, we have a parent volunteer room that we can bring our children that are still home and work on stuff in there to help out the teachers and school! go dragons!
