Welcome to Greenhill School, where difference is our superpower. From its inception in 1950 as a co-ed, nonsectarian school in the Dallas area, Greenhill has sought to champion that breadth of exposure often enhances depth of experience. Here, we aim to hold space for the host of identities, perspectives, and knowledges that our students, families, employees, and more bring to our community of communities. On our best days, we balance the critical need to see and honor the uniqueness in each of us while valuing that which unites us – our core values of excellence, integrity, compassion, and courage.
At Greenhill, this essential work of recognizing difference as an asset to authentic community is called plural commons. The formal definition states that plural commons is an environment where each person’s whole Self is welcomed, cared for, and seen as essential to the common good. Principally, plural commons is about relationships – how do you get them, grow them, and trust them? And, it is about surprises – are you open to the new, as well as seeing someone or something anew?
It is a dynamic time to be at Greenhill School, where we see meeting our mission as an act of service to our wider world. Whether you are a prospective or current student, family, or employee, have a look around to learn about some of the ways in which we seek to build community. Too, I would like to draw your attention to our philosophy statement, as well as our multi-year inclusion agenda.
We hope you are able to make yourself at home at Greenhill School, where difference is our superpower.
