It is my pleasure to welcome you to Greenhills’ middle school. Greenhills is a place where young people hone the skills that will help them follow their academic, artistic, and athletic passions as they move through young adulthood. Our middle school program provides a strong foundation upon which future academic and professional experiences can be stably built. We are mindful not only of the importance of academic rigor, but also of the need to develop habits of discernment, camaraderie, and compassion. Our students are Greenhills’ most emphatic spokespeople. When you visit, if you chat with any among them, you will learn much of what Greenhills offers.
We embrace the rapid development that takes place throughout the middle school years. Our faculty well understands the need to accept all students for who they are—at each moment, on each day—while working to lead them toward the next developmental milestone. We know that new technologies will continue to create new jobs, to reshape the skills required in existing disciplines, and to remind us that the abilities to communicate and to solve problems will remain salient. At Greenhills, we foster a collaborative team in which faculty, staff, students, and parents work together to forge a dynamic community.
Head of Middle School
Greenhills' middle school program supports students as they navigate these years.
The Greenhills middle school experience begins in 6th grade, when students from across the region are welcomed into an intimate forum area by a caring and cohesive group of teachers who are solely responsible for instructing the grade. Students begin to undertake tasks calling for personal organization, critical thinking, individual creativity, independent and collaborative work, and good study habits, all under the close guidance of committed teachers.
Greenhills middle school supports intellectual, physical and emotional growth. With the help of some unique programs, our students are challenged, nurtured and fully prepared for their upper school experience.
