Welcome to Greenhill School!
 
At Greenhill, our students are curious, inquisitive learners. They are steadfast in their quests to gain knowledge and wisdom, always seeking to deepen their understanding of our world. Our dedicated faculty members nurture the strengths and talents of each student, instilling the confidence to take risks and the tenacity to achieve their aspirational goals.
 
As our students grow and strive, so, too, does Greenhill. We are continually enhancing our academics, arts, and athletics programs, incorporating the latest research on how students learn, perform, and practice most effectively. We also ensure that each of our programs offers the foundational skills that will support our students during their time with us, and in the years to follow.
 
Since our founding in 1950, Greenhill has valued inclusivity. Our school is a dynamic blend of cultures, backgrounds, and genders, and we appreciate the unique gifts of each member of our community. Our faculty purposefully integrates the art of civil discourse into daily learning, teaching students how to converse with honor, respect, and compassion.
 
Whether you come to Greenhill for four years or fourteen, you are joining a family that lasts a lifetime. I invite you to visit our beautiful campus, see our vibrant classrooms, meet our incredible students, and experience all that Greenhill offers.
