The Wholistic Experience

Arts, athletics, and design and innovation are an integral part of the Upper School experience. 

Student Experience

In class, on the field, and on the stage, we treat students as growing, complex individuals. Advisory groups – small peer groups facilitated by faculty members – meet every other day to discuss everything from communication skills to time management. Advisory groups stay together for four years, building long lasting bonds.  
Student Support
Students can also take advantage of our student support staff, including counselors and learning specialists. They also receive wellness programming throughout the year. Our holistic approach to student learning helps students both academically and socially, preparing them for life after Greenhill. Find out more here.
Student Life
Our students lead, support, and learn from each other. Student advisory boards in arts, athletics, and community service encourage participation, build school spirit, and give back to the community. The Student Council and Honor Council offer valuable leadership skills, and groups like Hope Squad and Peer Mentors offer meaningful peer support. Students may also join myriad clubs and affinity groups, giving each person a place to build community.
Community Service and Service Learning
When students serve, they learn! Students support organizations across North Texas as they earn service hours, connecting them to the community as they learn how to give of themselves, support others, and become involved citizens. 
Global Online Academy Partnership
Greenhill's partnership with Global Online Academy expands the course options available and allows juniors and seniors to learn with students and instructors around the world.
With Greenhill’s 1:1 device program, all Upper School students receive a laptop to use during the school year preloaded with the programs needed to support classroom learning. Technology costs are included with tuition.
