The Greene School wants children to be joyful, active learners who develop the intellectual discipline necessary to become contributing, ethical citizens. To accomplish these ends, we believe in exploration and discovery, we advance the mastery of skills, and we help students shape meaning from knowledge. Our curriculum combines high-level U.S. standards with the finest international curriculum through which our students hone their interpersonal skills, solidify their habits of mind and graduate well prepared to excel in the nation’s top prep schools.
Having one of the finest groups of teachers working in independent schools in America, the learning that takes place in our classrooms is engaging, rigorous, creative, and much more. This stimulating learning experience balances chronological, developmental, and social/emotional growth with intellectual challenge to successfully educate the whole child and instill a love of learning.
Our students acquire skills that allow them to think deeply about subject matter. They learn not only the multiplication tables, but also the fundamental meaning behind those computations; they learn not only scientific formulae, but also the processes and theories that make the formulae come to life. Literature, history, Spanish, geography, and in some cases mathematics, art, music, and more form the foundations of our Central Subject approach to learning. The way our students learn becomes the foundation for a lifetime of learning.
At Greene, we honor the individual character and spirit of each child, and we encourage our students to be independent thinkers. Our program respects the pace of childhood, and our school is a safe environment where children feel free to take risks.
