Gordon Greenwood Elementary School opened on April 14, 1992. The location of the school was a farm site that was originally owned by Maxine Michaud. The school is named after Gordon Greenwood, a long-time resident of the Walnut Grove area and the oldest of eleven children. The Greenwoods moved to Fort Langley from Cessford, Alberta in 1935, when Gordon was fourteen years old.
Gordon graduated from the old Langley High School. He served as President of the Fort Langley Board of Trade and was a School Trustee from 1978 to 1990.
