Imagine a school wholeheartedly dedicated to creating a learning experience around the unique needs and passions of each student. That’s Greenhills. In intensely smart classes, our teachers push students to know the depth of what they’re truly capable of — from Jazz and 2D Design to Conceptual Physics.
Language and culture are inextricably linked. In our languages classes at Greenhills, we take advantage of all of the ways that each of our languages is linked with history, art, music, literature, politics, food, science, geography, dance, play, philosophy, daily life, and just about anything and everything. The areas we can tackle are limitless, hence the challenge and the fun. We can teach the fundamentals of language through ways that appeal to each of our own interests and passions, and to what is going in the world, our students’ lives, and school life in general.
For seven days in mid March, 44 fearless students and faculty members participated in the second annual Social Media Blackout Week Challenge sponsored by the Greenhills Mindfulness Club.

After a successful six-week build season, three district competitions, and a strong effort at the state championship, the Greenhills' Robotics Team, The Lawnmowers, have qualified to compete in the FIRST Robotics World Championships in Detroit!
Local news site Ann Arbor News/MLive reports that more than 10 percent of Washtenaw County's National Merit semifinalists hail from among the 91 members of the Greenhills Class of 2019, another sign that Greenhills students punch well above their weight class.
And we do our very best to draw it out daily. On average, any two people have 99.9% identical DNA. That means what makes you you is what comes from that remaining 0.1%. At Greenhills, we've crafted our entire 6th- through 12th-grade experience (and our approach to teaching) to unleash the full power of that 0.1%. So you can go out into the world — uniquely and confidently you. A one-of-a-kind work of art with the ability to do anything you set your very distinctive brain to.
