If your child is bored you will not find help here. This school is really great at teaching to students who are under standards. They will not offer your child extra work or something different than what the other children are learning. Then they took zero responsibility for their inability to teach. I do not appreciate this school.

I love Greenacres. I absolutely adore the new office staff and the new principal. The teachers are wonderful, creative and nurturing. My children have enjoyed going to Greenacres for 5 years now. Both the new principal and the previous one love children and put them first. I am so impressed with the respect the staff has for one another and for the parents of their students.

The Leadership and Staff are one of the best in Central Valley area. Feel lucky to have had my children pass through.

TOO many employees at the office, you never know who you are talking to and if they want to cut budgets for the school district they can eliminate some of those dead weight positions. My child's teacher's idea of teaching is passing out worksheets and letting other students help each other. In this classroom, repetition is the choice of teaching if you want to call it that. Now I feel like she has gotten behind from other kids in the same grade. Teachers and principals think our kids don't talk to us about school. Prinicipal in my opinion is naive about what goes on and doesn't seem genuine in her concerns but about playing nice to cover herself and her staffl. Principal is not thoughtful of her actions for she handles situations sooo inappropriately.

Mediocre school and not impressed with staff or my child's teacher this year. Too bad teachers and principals don't get rotated to other schools often enough or switch jobs so we can have change. Room for plenty of improvements. Principal should represent herself better with actions.

Greenacres Elementary is a wonderful school. I have a second and third grader attending. The staff/teachers are very concerned for your children's academic growth. The Pricipal's ethics and morals are very commendable as well. She plays a very active role with the children. She puts the children first before her administration duties.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
