About Us

Located near the prestigious Palmer Woods Community, Greenfield Union Elementary-Middle School is a safe, and caring neighborhood school that focuses on educating students for a global society. Students are expected to be productive, technology-literate, and culturally-aware lifelong learners that are prepared to give back to their communities. Our school is surrounded by the neighborhood development Penrose Project, which has built dozens of new homes in the community. We serve Pre-K to grade 4 in an annex that was built in 2002 and grades 5-8 in an historically-designated main building, which opened in 1918.
