  • I have had a son and now two grandchildren who have attended this school. Jerry Green is an outstanding principal who is always 'out and about', monitoring services and interacting with students and teachers. He is an extraordinary principal who insures that this is an extraordinary school.

  • My son loves his principal Jerry Greene. We think he is the best around, he is so good to the children. You walk through the hallways, and children storm him for a hug or just to say hello. I think he is the best Principal that I've ever known.
