Greenhills School is a community that helps young people realize their full intellectual, ethical, artistic and athletic potential as curious, creative, and responsible citizens who respect all individuals and their differences, and whose meaningful and balanced lives will better the world.
Greenhills is first and foremost about relationships. It is about bonds of friendship that extend beyond each grade to last a lifetime. It is about parents and faculty who work together because they want the best for each child. It is about teachers and coaches supporting students through their challenges and celebrating their achievements.
The many programs in and out of classrooms at Greenhills upper school are characterized by independence, rigor and courage. We want the students who come here to walk out equipped with the intellectual tools and hunger for life that will enable them to navigate the complexities of a changing world. Our graduates will design approaches to global dilemmas that no one has thought of; they will pursue noble goals with enthusiasm and joy; they will learn well because learning, for them, is a pleasure.
Profound changes in both cognitive and ethical development happen during adolescence, and at Greenhills we count it a profound objective that our students understand the close connections between the world of the mind and the environment we occupy and shape. To this end, we offer students a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that will prepare them for the challenges of the finest colleges and universities and the ongoing evolution of the 21st century workplace.
By balancing study in various subject areas with interdisciplinary opportunities and co-curricular activities, our aim is to produce principled, responsible learners who can succeed in any endeavor and who shy from no challenge.
