Hello everyone
My daughter might go to Greenfield Community School GCS for Grade 1. I would like to get some input from parents who have their kids going there. Very few reviews online and they are normally very polarized!
1. Overall how do you like the school?
2. I am looking to find a well rounded academics with extra curricular activities.Can I expect that?
3. How is the parent teacher communication?
4. Is there something you do not like there?
5. How bad is the traffic congestion going there during drop off and pick up time?

Any other input is really appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your time.
Anxious Parent!

My Kids go to DBS another Taaleem school), but we go to events there all the time. I have only heard good things about the school and you can access the school from the 611 By-pass road now. Have you been on a tour? Did you know it was an IB curriculm?

Thanks for your input, appreciate it! Yes, I want my daughter to follow IB curriculum and I did take the tour. Nice spacious school. But was not sure how the parent teacher communication aspect was..and any other hiccup that i need to be aware of..I understand Taleem schools in general are good..
