In Preschool and Lower School, art is offered to all students on a weekly rotation, but students may choose from a variety of courses to express their creativity beginning in Middle School.

Theatre

Performings Arts at Greenhill are a big deal. As a retired teacher once said, "Musicals, by design, are big productions. It is bigger than the talents of one person. We need the Dance department, the Singers, the Band and Orchestra and the Tech Crew. We need every available talent and every inch of space to make a show work. No school does that better than Greenhill."
