Greenwood School

A different way of teaching, a better way of learning

Greenwood School is a unique school for students in 6th through 12th grades who are challenged by learning differences and/or need a smaller academic environment. Greenwood’s highly-trained faculty guides students in a rigorous academic curriculum that is enhanced and supplemented by the abundant natural resources of the Greenwood School campus, which includes 10 acres of protected wetlands for environmental, conservation and wildlife studies and research partnerships, as well as outdoor classroom areas that provide inspiring settings for a wide variety of academic pursuits and overall wellness benefits to staff and students.

In addition, Greenwood facilities include indoor and outdoor fine arts facilities for chorus, band, drama, art and dance, a fully equipped gymnasium and technology-integrated classrooms.

Encouraging growth

The foundation of Greenwood School programs is our specialized instruction, which includes the expert use of research-proven practices beneficial to all students, but especially to students with specific learning differences. We provide strategies, support and accommodations to create learning opportunities that effectively address the individual needs of students and enable them to experience success with a challenging, college- and career-preparatory curriculum.

Approximately two-thirds of Greenwood’s graduates continue on to colleges, universities, trade and technical schools, as well as career-path apprenticeship training. Average class sizes of 12 students or less enable Greenwood to provide the most appropriate balance of challenge and support for all students; we are recognized experts in the education of students with a variety of challenges, including ADHD, auditory and/or visual processing delays, autism spectrum disorders, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties, general anxieties, twice-exceptional/gifted students and other differences.

Inspiring opportunities

Core classes are supplemented by enrichment courses: art, band, coding, drama, graphic design, history electives, physical education, science electives, sociology and many other options. In addition to academics, Greenwood students benefit from interscholastic athletics, National Honor Society, Student Council and a variety of other extracurricular activities and clubs, such as archery, chess, ecology/zoology, fencing and running.

The Greenwood Way

Discussion, modeling and mentoring of positive character and social responsibility are an important part of a well-rounded, prepared-for-life graduate; that’s why Greenwood School’s learning environment is one of mutual respect, kindness and accountability — in and out of the classroom.
