Welcome New Families

We are thrilled to welcome our new students and their families to Greenhill School! These unprecedented times have called for many changes in the way we communicate so we have put together a series of videos from our Head of School and Division Heads to welcome you to our community.
 
 
"Greenhill is an amazing community, full of generous, caring families from all walks of life. Even though we are all different, what unifies us is a shared commitment to living our mission."

Welcome to the Parents' Association

Welcome new families to the Greenhill community and to the PA! As soon as you enroll your child at Greenhill School, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association!
 
The Parents’ Association (PA) supports our school in many ways, including:
  • Facilitating parent connections through a variety of social activities;
  • Coordinating speakers and events to help keep our parents informed;
  • Providing support for faculty and staff through appreciation events and in times of need;
  • Organizing community-wide celebrations for parents and students;
  • Filling numerous volunteer and leadership opportunities.
 
Each grade level has parent representatives. They will help you navigate our activities and find ways for you to participate and optimize your Greenhill experience. I am always available to help or lend an ear as well. Enjoy your years as Greenhill parents and congratulations again! I look forward to working with you over the next year.

Volunteering at Greenhill

Volunteers bring our campus to life and enrich the Greenhill experience for all of our students. While we are excited to welcome volunteers back to campus, we are still working through plans for the 2021-22 school year. We hope to have more information on volunteer opportunities later this summer so make sure to watch your inbox for an announcement.

Greenhill Fund

Throughout its history, Greenhill School has relied on the generosity of the community in the pursuit of excellence. Our parent community has shown tremendous support of the Greenhill Fund with participation as high as 96%! Examples of sacrifice and support began in our very first year when founding Head of School Bernard Fulton and other faculty members went without a salary to ensure a successful launch of the school.
 
Today, all families are given the opportunity to show their support of the school through the Greenhill Fund. Annual contributions to the Greenhill Fund provide 5% of the school's budget, including faculty salaries, financial aid, arts, academics, and athletic programs. These funds provide essential elements for our exemplary program. Without the Greenhill Fund, our program would not be as full and dynamic. All gifts are 100% tax deductible.

Greenhill Facilities

Greenhill’s 75-acre campus offers the perfect setting for a safe and vibrant learning experience. The classrooms are small, reinforcing our belief in an interactive and intimate academic environment.
 
All classrooms are filled with natural lighting, and multiple windows provide a glimpse of learning to all who may walk by. In addition, all teacher workspaces are open and accessible and support our goal of providing an inviting environment for teacher-student interaction.
 
The Greenhill campus features separate academic buildings for Upper, Middle, Lower School, and Preschool students, which are within close proximity to one another to provide opportunities for cross-division interaction. The Fine Arts Building, Phillips Family Athletic Center, and Marshall Family Performing Arts Center provide space for students to showcase their athletic and artistic talents.

School Activities

This section provides parents with a glimpse into the daily life of a Greenhill student. The information in this section will help guide parents through yearlong activities that students will participate in as well as terms that are heard throughout the Greenhill community.

    Advisors serve as a constant mentor to help guide students throughout their years in Middle and Upper School.

    All Greenhill families will receive email notices of after-school activities coordinated by the Extended Day office, such as art, tennis, and chess. For an extra charge, you may register your child to attend these activities even if your child does not regularly attend Extended Day.
  • Extended Day (PreK - 8th)

    Greenhill families who desire childcare before or after the regular school day may use Extended Day. Families interested in late pick up must submit an application over the summer. Enrollment is limited, so early registration is encouraged. There are additional charges for participating in Extended Day after school.

The Festival has been instrumental in the development of strong arts programs in participating ISAS schools and richly inspirational to their students.
  • Legacy Groups (Heart of the Hill)

    Legacy Groups are small groups of students from different grades that meet regularly for “Heart of the Hill” gatherings on campus. Typically, a Legacy Group includes students from Preschool, Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School, as well as faculty and staff. Legacy Groups remain the same year after year, with graduates “replaced” by new Preschool students. Legacy Groups help students of all ages get to know one another.
  • Mini-School

    Held early in the school year, Mini Schools are evenings designed to intro-duce parents to teachers and give the faculty an opportunity to outline curriculum, goals, and expectations. Parents have the opportunity to hear about their child’s schedule and see a typical day. For parents only.
  • Reenrollment Contracts

    Reenrollment contracts are posted online for Greenhill families in early February. The contract outlines financial and tuition obligations for the up-coming school year. Contracts must be executed by a parent/guardian, and a non-refundable deposit is due in mid-February. There is also information about the lunch program and school insurance.
  • Reserved Parking Spaces

  • SAGE Dining Services (Lunch)

    All Greenhill students are automatically enrolled in the SAGE Dining Plan. The premier partner in dining experience, SAGE uses whole foods as well as the freshest products to create nutritious meals for our students.

Upper School students compete in the SPC; the championships are in the fall, winter, and spring, with schools rotating as hosts.
