Academics / School Life

Greenhills School offers a challenging college preparatory curriculum—with emphasis on creative expression, critical thinking and communication skills.

The curriculum is designed to challenge a broad range of students from 6th through 12th grade. Students may select among a variety of advanced courses and participate in off-campus field trips and community service activities that present opportunities for growth and education in different ways.

Both the Middle School and the Upper School are located within the same building, and students have special opportunities to develop friendships and offer mentoring through Middle School Math Tutoring (upper school students assist middle school students) and Senior Buddies (seniors and sixth graders).

The average section size is 16 students, but many sections are smaller as students progress into the upper school, where both language and elective course offerings expand. Small class size and a personal, nurturing environment in which students develop close relationships with faculty who work in partnership with parents are hallmarks of a Greenhills education.
