Open Quote I love this school. When we transferred into Greenwood we were not sure because no one ever had anything good to say about the school. But once the kids started attending the school, we feel in love with the teachers and the staff. There is a new principal and she is making a world of difference. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
