<p> Greenacres School opened in 1916, making it the oldest elementary school in the district.</p>
<p>The leadership at Greenacres School works hard to preserve that history and has embarked on a number of projects including fixing the mechanical systems of the building, strengthening the structure and making general improvements.</p> <p>The school improved the interior decor and brightened it, in hopes of stimulating  students through a better environment. There is an overhaul of the courtyard in the works helmed by a landscape architect. But the desire to hang on to the past, in a respectful way,  is still there, with preserved photos, mementos and memoribilia from the 1930s onward. </p> <p>Despite the homage to the past, teachers and administration are determined to represent the newest thinking in educational approaches. Last year started Singapore Math, a real-life problem-based approach to mathematics that also trains the students in perserverence and pragmatism while generating solutions.</p> <p>The principal is <b></b> Gerry Young.</p>
