Greenville Fundamental Elementary
The History of Our NameGreenville, was formerly a rural section of Santa Ana, and has buildings over a century old! One example is the 1876 Greenville Country Church which stands on the Southeast corner of MacArthur (formerly Talbert Ave.) and Greenville Street.Now, industrial complexes have replaced the expansive agricultural fields that once surrounded the town. But near Segerstrom High School, the church, and across the street from Greenville Fundamental School, there remains some
very limited agricultural land.The Date Our School was BuiltOriginally, in the late 1800's, there was a one-teacher "Greenville School" for the ranch families that lived in the neighborhood.
The new Greenville School, located on the corner of MacArthur (formerly Talbert) and Raitt St., was built in 1979.Our School MascotGreenville GreyhoundsFamous People Who Have Attended GreenvilleAdam HurtadoA former Greenville student, who was a contestant on The Biggest Loser, in which he changed his lifestyle to lose weight and gain health, and has been an inspiration to the youth of Santa Ana.Matt Leinart:USC football star and NFL football star,Matt Leinart, played football at Mater Dei with Adam Hurtado.
