Students and faculty work together to create an environment where students and teachers know each other as more than a name on a classroom door or a line or two in a gradebook and cooperate to help our students realize their full potential in preparation for college – and beyond.
At Greenhills, our average class size is 16. And while 70 percent of our teachers hold advanced degrees, 100 percent of them are completely committed to bringing out the best in their students.
Whether you're building a robot from scratch on one of our robotics teams or conducting ground-breaking research with one of our academic or industry partners as part of our Advanced Research Program, as a Greenhills student you'll push the limits of the possible — both before and after graduation.
Catch our student jazz band at a storied Ann Arbor music venue. Or spend a morning assembly listening to nationally-known professional musicians. Sit at the potter's wheel, take the stage for a theatrical excursion, or argue either side of a question with our championship debate team. Whatever your artistic passion, Greenhills nurtures it.
Gryphons compete. But more importantly, our athletic department — one of less than 30 in state history to be named an "Exemplary Program" by the Michigan High School Athletic Association and the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association — does more than just win championships. Our 20 varsity sports are organized around the idea of balance: in athletics, academics, and life. Gryphon athletics is synonymous with strong coaching, sportsmanship, and success that lasts a lifetime.
Whether they're studying ecosystems in one of our on-campus ponds, researching cutting-edge science at the University of Michigan through our Advanced Research Program, or simply enjoying a class trip to Canada, Greenhills students enjoy exhilarating opportunities to bring learning to life.
Greenhills was established in 1968, with equality as one of its central visions. We live that vision today through the promotion of diversity as integral to the ethos and practices of the school: as a source of strength that enriches teaching and learning.
Greenhills is a college preparatory, interactive and caring community where academic excellence is paramount. Our students graduate as literate, caring, thinking, and morally responsible individuals
