Greenwood School District No. 50 Reviews

I was 4 years old when I arrived to the Untied States and was enrolled to Greenwood School District 50. I started preschool at Woodfield’s Elementary School, I attended four different elementary schools. At all the schools I was always felt welcomed by school's staff and teachers. They always looked for ways to help students like me who didn't understand English. In District 50 they have a program called ESOL, which helps students learn English as their second language. Many students have been able to learn English with the help of this program, allowing us to succeed in class and be able to achiever higher levels of education. Overall Greenwood School District 50 has been a great experience for my family and me. I would recommend Greenwood District 50 to any family because of the support they offer the kids and families.

I enjoyed the equal opportunities for all students regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity or background. Variety of different clubs and activities available. Greenwood District fifty truly wanted every student to succeed. The staff, principles, coaches, and board worked hard to create a fair and judgment-free environment.
They push anti-bullying but they do nothing about actual bullying. There is a lot of beautiful diversity but it is ignored; the arts get absolutely no money and work hard and as soon as they get noticed, something sports related takes over even though from what I understand, all of our teams suck. Every time there is an administrator that is nice and tries to do what's best for the kids they get moved to another school just as they have started to build relationships with the kids. The middle school arts programs are cliquey and don't allow for music diversity either.
It's what people think about when they think of a harsh, bible belt, ghetto school where it doesn't matter how creative or smart or how hard you work, it only matters if the teachers like you and if you look like everyone else, if you fit into a clique.
