This school struggles with racism and would benefit from learning that everyone is important and that minority students are talented too.

Greenwood Mill is a great school. Very caring teachers and office staff. Everyone appears to enjoy working there. The kids seem happy also. Large, interactive playground. We've been there for 3 years and our family loves Greenwood Mill Elementary.

I love this school. The office staff is very welcoming and the principal is very involved and caring. The school offers many educational field trips and the teachers seem very concerned about each child's success. Wonderful school. Proud to be a Gator!

Greenwood Mill is an awesome school! The staff is very caring and approaches the education of the students as a team effort. The principal calls every kid by his or her name (how she remembers them all, I don't know). Every member of the staff should be commended for a job well done!

Moved from the Northern Virginia area (Fairfax/Loudoun/Prince William/Aralington) to Frederick County Va and was a little worried that our kids wouldn't have some of the bells & whistles that the northern va schools had. Greenwood mill is a very good school. It is very community oriented and my kids like the school and are doing very well. The facilities are great. The only thing I don't like is there isn't a field for the kids to play on. I have also met quite a few parents and teachers that were residents of Loudoun/Fairfax and Montgomery County that relocated to frederick county because they were looking for the same thing..an affordable area to raise their children with good schools. Well at this point and juncture I would venture to say they have found it at Greenwood Mills...Go Gators!!

An EXCELLENT school! Very clean. Well funded. Huge / new playground! All books and equipment seem new / top-notch! The student / teacher ratio is comfortable. Integrates modern technology and learning techniques! Each classroom has several computers in additional to a full computer lab. Kids get lunches with an electronic system which helps them learn about electronic debits which we all love. There is a flat screen 40-50" LCD / Plasma on the wall in every classroom which, from what I understand, is how they receive their morning announcements and such. The staff is nothing but courteous and DEF child friendly! The school is really accommodating for fun things like allowing parents to send in snacks for your children's birthdays and they plan really interesting and fun field trips! We Love GMES!!! Go Gators!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
