School Notes:

  • The Green Vale School, founded in 1923, is located in Old Brookville, NY on a beautiful forty-acre campus that has seen two new centers built in the last few years - the Schwerin Early Childhood Center and the Blue-Gold Health And Wellness Center. Five science labs, smartboards in every classroom, seven playing fields, band and choral rooms, a crafts shop and two art studios are just a few key resources for an outstanding faculty, curious and engaged students and a supportive parent body. The environment and culture at Green Vale is ideal for young minds. Families interested in pursuing excellence and investing in a strong educational foundation are invited to tour the campus by appointment, or at one of the Open Houses (November through April.)
