Greenwood Elementary School Reviews
The quality of edcuation is lower this year then in the past. Greenwood has adopted a single track system vs. a traditional year round school system. A few other schools in the Montebello School District (CA.) are also on single track. Parents are advocating that the district return to a traditional school system, yet the teachers union and the district created a behind the door contract to phase in a single track system. LAUSD is also starting to phase in single track systems and the parents are starting to organize to protest these efforts.
