Greathouse/Shryock Traditional Elementary School is committed to providing a traditional learning environment where each student is responsible for his or her own social, academic and physical well-being in order to become a contributing member of our diverse society. The Traditional Program stresses basic skills in a highly organized environment. Our program has stringent academic standards and high expectations for students. There are defined guidelines and a dress code, as well as nightly homework. We encourage meaningful parent involvement and provide frequent communication to parents to strengthen continuity between home and school. Our children achieve at high levels because there is a partnership agreement between the school, student and parent.
Our 612 students in kindergarten through fifth grade represent a diverse population that comes from suburban and urban communities and reflects all socioeconomic levels. Parent satisfaction is evidenced through comprehensive school surveys and by the large number of students that apply for the random lottery admission to our program each year. We have stong parent involvement through our PTA which provides quality programs and services for our students.
Greathouse continues to lead the way with the highest elementary school test scores (Kentucky Interim Progress Report - KIPR) in Jefferson County Public Schools. We are successful because of the partnership agreement between the school, student and family.
