Green Acres Elementary School Home

About Us

Green Acres Elementary School has been recognized by the state of California as a Gold Ribbon Award School based on our literacy program. At Green Acres, we believe in the importance of educating the whole child and hope to ignite a passion for learning by incorporating art, music, physical education, digital skills, and our Life Lab Garden into the curriculum.
Reading is a priority in our school. Our Response to Intervention (RTI) Program provides time each day dedicated for reading instruction geared to meet the individual needs of students. An important goal for our students is that they learn to communicate their thinking orally and in writing, and to be able to apply their learning to novel situations.
Green Acres is home to a committed staff that works together and models the collaborative spirit we wish to inspire in our students. We hope to foster a growth mindset in our community, so that challenges can be routinely viewed as opportunities for learning. We want our students to learn that perseverance pays off in meeting personal goals, along with our rigorous academic standards.
Our staff is committed to the safety and well-being of all students. We use Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) at our school, which includes school-wide rules and common expectations for all students. We have a counselor on staff who organizes social skills groups throughout the year. Our child nutrition program is second to none, with fresh food prepared daily in our district. We have a recess coach who organizes group activities during recess.
Along with great programs and a wonderful facility, it is the students, families and staff that make this school a gem in the heart of Santa Cruz County!
