Greenwood Elementary School, Jefferson County Schools, 1210 School Rd., Bessemer, AL 35022
Greenwood is a very small Jefferson County school that is drastically changing in demographics ultimately throwing it into an identity crisis. It is a public school in an unincorportated school zone; however, it sits on land that is within a municipality. The school receives no funds from this municipality. It has just lost its Federal Title I status due to changes within the socio-economic structure of the school. It has had a very, very low socio-economic base but has "inherited" affluent members due to recent development in the area.
This school does a magnificent job of maintaining the mission and goal of "Success for All." No Child Left Behind" is lived and embraced in this tiny school, impacting its surrounding community.
