With over 65 performing and visual arts courses, copious extracurricular opportunities, an accomplished faculty and world-class facilities, it's no wonder Greenhill inspires so many students to discover and honor their artistic gifts.
"Our goal in Preschool and Lower School is to introduce students to a wide variety of opportunities in the arts starting the moment they first set foot on campus. We establish foundational skills that will let them pursue their individual interests in depth as they transition into Middle and Upper School," - Terry Martin
, Head of Fine Arts
Starting as early as PreK, students explore the basics of dance, music, visual arts and drama. During daily co-curricular classes, trained teachers (all well-respected artists) work with students to develop their skills, often connecting projects to classroom learning.
For example, first graders build simple machines using fruit as an artistic medium; fourth graders write and perform one-act plays while studing biographical literature; all students dabble in everything from 3D printed arts to choral music to self-portraiture. By fourth grade, students are excited and ready to choose specialized performing and visual arts electives in Middle School.
From Middle School onward, students can try everything from glass working to digital photography to choreography, or they can choose to specialize in one or two disciplines. It's even possible to do both. Upon entering Upper School, students have the opportunity to learn from award-winning educators and be part of a prominent Greenhill tradition in film or photography.
Go ahead. Be a painter, a singer, a dancer, a violinist, an actor, a comedian, a photographer, a debater, a sculptor, a producer. It’s all possible at Greenhill.
