Greenbrook History

Greenbrook Elementary School opened in August 1975 with approximately 500 students in grades 1-6 under the leadership of Principal Barbara James.  The faculty consisted of 21 teachers.  The school was originally comprised of two buildings--the main building and a first & second grade building. Kindergarten was added in 1987.

Mr. Herman Hill became our principal when Mrs. James retired in 1992. At that time, the staff had expanded to 46 teachers and 15 instructional assistants. The school population had grown to approximately 980 students.   Two additional buildings as well as two classrooms were added to accommodate the growth.  In 1997, Southaven Middle School opened and Greenbrook became a K-5th grade school.

Mr. Hill was promoted to a position at the county office in 1998 and Mrs. Stephanie Gilder became our principal.  In July of 2003, a new kindergarten building was opened to accommodate increased school enrollment. It also houses the Patricia A. Madden Library in memory of one of our former teachers.

The 2005-2006 school year saw the opening of a multi-purpose building to be used for the physical education program.

Mrs. Patricia Moore became Greenbrook's principal in 2006-2007.  The enrollment increased to over 1,200 students housed in 7 buildings and 4 modular classrooms.   With the opening of Southaven Intermediate School in the 2008-2009 school year, Greenbrook became a K-2nd grade school.

In 2011 Mrs. Moore retired and Mrs. Margaret Wright became Greenbrook Elementary School's  principal until her retirement in 2014.  

Mrs. MeLynda Crockett served as Greenbrook's  principal until her retirement in 2019 with Mrs. Helen Wright succeeding her until her transfer to Overpark Elementary in May of 2023.

We are proud to announce Mrs. Amy Cobb as the principal starting school year 2023!
