Welcome New Families

Welcome to Greenhill!
 
We are thrilled that your family will be joining our vibrant and dynamic community! We’ve created this webpage to serve as a resource in the months leading up to the start of the 2019-20 school year. You’ll be able to find the school calendar, information about lunch, athletics information for our Upper School families, and other helpful background as you prepare for your Greenhill experience. Please check back often because we’ll be updating information on this page throughout the spring. Also, Division heads will be sending important reminders to you throughout the spring and during the summer.

US Foundations Available This Summer!

Do you want to begin Upper School feeling more comfortable and confident? A weeklong course, Upper School Foundations provides an overview to incoming students by focusing on five crucial areas: the writing process, research paper composition, math/science applications, study skills, and acclimation to life in the high school. Students will spend four-and-a-half hours each day taking separate classes that will cover information, expectations, and suggestions geared towards easing their transition into Upper School. This course is limited to Greenhill students only. Visit the Summer on the Hill webpage for more information.

  • Communications

    While your child is a student at Greenhill, we will communicate with you primarily through email via summer messages, MyGreenhill Weekly, special announcements & events, and additional personal contact.
  • Computer Recommendations

    At Greenhill, we believe that technology should be used to foster anytime, anywhere learning. We intentionally and purposefully blend technology throughout the curriculum to promote active learning and collaboration. Consequently, it is important for families and students to have regular access to a computer and the Internet. CLICK HERE for computer recommendations, specifications, and additional information.
  • Dining Services

    Greenhill School has been partnering with SAGE Dining, the premier partner in dining experience, for nine years, and students and faculty all agree that the food is delicious. SAGE uses organic and locally sourced produce whenever possible to support sustainable practices and feels strongly about fostering community at Greenhill through healthy dining. As one of SAGE's 170 clients across the nation using this model, Greenhill considers it a very successful and like-minded partnership. CLICK HERE to learn more.
  • Extended Day

    Over 250 children from Greenhill attended the Extended Day Program each year. While many of the children come because their parents are working, others enroll for the social aspects and interesting and enriching opportunities. Children in each of the programs may experience cooking, art, science, outdoor and indoor games, special culture projects, and have the opportunity to enroll in various Extend & Explore Programs. Registration for Extended Day for the 2019-20 school year will be in July.
  • Faculty Directory & Curriculum Guide

    Greenhill faculty and staff play many roles; all with the goal of inspiring every student in the classroom, the arts, on the athletic fields, and in developing interpersonal connections. CLICK HERE to see our faculty directory along with our PreK - 12 curriculum guide.
  • Greenhill Fund

    Annual contributions to the Greenhill Fund provide support that is used for a myriad of operating expenses including faculty salaries, financial aid, arts and academics, to name only a few. These funds go directly to the operating budget to help bridge the tuition income shortfall gap. The Greenhill Fund helps the school thrive by providing 5% of the school’s operating budget, bridging the $3,000 gap between tuition revenue and the expense of providing a Greenhill education; sustaining our exceptional curriculum which challenges students to meet their intellectual potential; and supporting financial aid, making a Greenhill education accessible to all families.
  • Guide to Greenhill

    2019-20 Guide to Greenhill: A quick book that includes many details about Greenhill life.
  • MyGreenhill Weekly

    MyGreenhill Weekly is an electronic weekly publication that comes out on Thursdays. MyGreenhill Weekly is the one-stop-shop for all current news, from the Parent’s Association to divisional information, classroom updates, Arts and Athletics. It is a valuable tool for parents to keep up to date with all that is going on at Greenhill.
  • Parents' Association

    When your child is accepted at Greenhill School, you are automatically a member of the Parents’ Association! The Parents’ Association (PA) supports our school in several ways by coordinating parent-driven speakers and activities to keep our parents informed; facilitating parent connections through social occasions; providing support for faculty and staff through appreciation events and in times of need; organizing community-wide celebrations for parents and students; and filling numerous volunteer and leadership opportunities.
  • Publications

    Each year, Greenhill produces an award-winning newspaper along with a nationally-recognized student magazine that features the best of Greenhill’s journalism and creative writing students. Greenhill prints its own official magazine - The Hill - a photo-filled magazine provides timely stories, news briefs, alumni updates and more. In addition, the Upper School journalism students publish Greenhill’s student-run newspaper six times a year. Founded in 1966, Evergreen has won many local and state awards.
  • Summer on the Hill

    Summer on the Hill provides a memorable experience for every boy and girl during our 11-week season.

CLICK HERE to check out all of the different choices available for the upcoming summer.
