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.
Something is always happening at Greenhills.
