Greendale School District Reviews
Rating 4.14 out of 5 37 reviews
It was overall very good. I received an amazing education and there are many opportunities to become involved in the school as well as the community.
I liked the fact that there are many activities you can join at Greendale. Very welcoming. What I would like to see change is the fraud against students with disabilities from the High School and the discrimination.
My time in the Greendale School District was extremely positive. The teachers and environment was conducive to learning and taught me valuable skills that are helping me succeed at Collage.
Greendale schools focuses on student achievement. Its fine arts programs are high quality. Its teachers are caring and empathetic.
A lot of the teachers are really great and it's very noticeable how they want the best for their students. There is a variety of extracurriculars available which I love. Homework load can be a lot, but some teachers are understanding. A lot of teachers are willing to stay after hours to help students which is awesome as well. school has been really great about COVID-19 and figuring out how to finish the school year and still have important events. Something I would like to see improved in the school is proper training for teachers to understand how to better their students mental health. What I mean by that is know how to handle it in a class and allow on occasion for students to take brakes when they aren't doing okay. (this is a concept I've learned a lot of teachers don't understand).
This school is very good at preparing students for college. I have gone through all Greendale schools my entire life and was given the help I needed in order to be successful. If you/your child attends Greendale and they want to do good they will. There are more good teachers than bad, but when there is a bad teacher it is usually pretty bad. Although I have not personally had any issues with any teachers, there are certain stories I have heard that have definitely raised eyebrows. Greendale is as just as good as of a school as any other in the are and will prepare students just as much, maybe more. One thing Greendale is lacking is diversity within the student body, as well as the staff, which I do understand is something that is difficult to change, but and greater effort could be put forth.
I have been going to school in the Greendale School District my entire life. I love it and I can't imagine going to school any other place.
I have had children attend elementary, middle, and high school in the Greendale School District. I am very happy with the education my children have received and with the extracurricular opportunities. The teachers are great and parent involvement is excellent.
Greendale is a decent school. Very traditional in what it offers. Doesn't offer a lot of variety for summer school or any online classes. There is very little diversity in the school district, and there has been very little help in choosing a college or a career path.
Greendale High School is a very good environment to be in and it does a very good job preparing students for college. There are so many opportunities for the students to explore and the faculty works very hard to help students by putting forth more effort than they are required to. Growing up in Greendale Schools has helped me become the best person possible and has helped me prepare for my nursing career with challenging, but helpful courses.
The teachers truly care about each and every student that they have. They reach out to you during their free time, after school, and make an effort to know you personally. My Elementary and Middle School years were filled with learning and I was pushed to be involved in clubs and sports, which I am grateful for because it has made me the diverse, well rounded student I am today. Being a senior in high school, I have connected with so many staff, parents, and fellow students that have shaped my personality and have opened up so many doors for me in the upcoming college years. The college readiness they have set up is great for exploring and undecided students like myself. Classes at Greendale are taught by well fit teachers that are beyond knowledgeable in their field. There is a wide variety of classes that prepare students for the real world. Overall, Greendale Schools is a exceptional place to be at and I am proud to say I will be graduating from in 2020.
I loved my experience with the Greendale School District. All throughout my school years, I was surrounded by teachers that cared about me and encouraged me to learn. Greendale always provided a comforting environment that allowed for me to focus on my studies and embrace my academic potential. Greendale is not perfect, of course- every school district has some flaws- but I always felt very lucky to go to Greendale. Our staff members are set on pushing their students towards success. The teachers push their students so that they can fulfill their full potential. Along with academics, Greendale has always offered a multitude of extracurricular activities for the students to get involved in. I am involved in the Christian after-school club called "Campus Life," which has really enriched my spiritual life & my character.
Greendale is great for academics but, has a long way to go with racism and diversity. the school system is 90% white and have their share of racism and dont respond to it well. White Students are using the n-word on a daily base and nothing is being done about it. Students of color do not feel welcomed. the school district attempts to do townhall/diversity training but, those who chose to be racist refuse to take the classes. to live in Greendale when youre not white is a challenge. Greendale has a long long way to go when it comes to "change". it takes a strong family of color to live here.
Greendale school district is a place where students are often encouraged to be themselves and to branch out and try new things. But when students share ideas that are not considered "fit" by the administration, they are looked down upon.
Superintendent didn't want to face the racial climate at the school until the media got involved. Racial slurs are thrown around the school and administration usually choose to ignore it.
Greendale is an older community that does not accept outsiders. Provincial attitudes hold it back and it's high percentage of over 65 residents don't value investing in schools.
I was very impressed by the staff and I am so greatful that I got to connect with them. I was also very thankful for the quality of education I received. It truly prepared me for my college career.
