Building Skills, Becoming Independent

Greenhill Middle School isn't just a stepping-stone to Upper School. It's a special place where students are valued, nurtured, and challenged to become their best selves.
"Middle School is an exciting, important time here at Greenhill," said Susan Palmer, Head of Middle School. "Our building is filled with enthusiastic teachers who connect with students and engaged students who connect with each other. In and out of class, students build a strong academic foundation while developing important skills for school and life. And, they learn in ways that are exciting and relevant right now. There's a lot of fun happening here!"

Autonomy: Own Your Day

Middle School students enjoy lots of choices when it comes to everyday life at Greenhill. From classes and clubs to arts and athletics, opportunities to pursue what you love abound.

Independent Learning

Freedom comes with challenges, which is why our Middle School curriculum is designed to help students learn skills for school and life, like time-management, self-advocacy, compassion, and resiliency. It's the perfect time to grow through trial and error.
