  • We live in Greenwich and love this school, it has been a wonderful, nurturing environment for our kids. This year there is a new principal that is fantastic, we are looking forward to the years ahead. Budget cuts eliminated some of the services in the past that one parent mentioned but the new principal has reinstated them and has hired new personnel to meet these needs. Totally new approach and emphasis on academic excellence but strong value based learning as well! We love GCS!

  • I sent both my children to GCS and it was a HUGE error. There was no support forus. When my daughter did not meet the reading level required and I could not afford an extra $500 a month for tutoring , we were told there was no spot for us. Heaven forbid they hold a student back, it doesn't look good for them.

  • I regret sending my daughter to GCS. I should have known better when the day I received a tour, a teacher was yelling at her students. It went downhill from there.

  • Our children have had such a great experience at GCS. The teachers are very dedicated and caring with a commitment to making every student excel academically, socially and spiritually. It's reassuring to know that our children are receiving a value based education where the primary concern is on learning and growing as individuals. As we've come to realize, no two children are a like, and GCS has met all of our needs.

  • Greenwich Catholic School has provided a safe, loving, caring and nurturing academic environment for my children for the past eight years. The children are taught to care and respect not only their teachers but each other as well. The curriculum and moral fiber of the school is strong and is evident in the type of student that completes their elementary education at GCS.
