The school district is very good. The teachers and students are always there to help and motivate you. The people who live in Greenlawn are very nice. My neighbors had helped my grandpa when he was not doing well and made sure that we were okay. It is very peaceful living here. Everything is close from the school and library to the cafe and mall. People have many family gatherings at the park so it is always a pleasure to see the diversity when we do attend.
I have grown up in Greenlawn, NY. It is a lovely suburb neighborhood surrounded by friendly people. The school has a high academic ranking.
