School Notes:

Greenwood Sudbury School is a completely different kind of school for students ages 5 through 19. Our students are empowered with a sense of self-determination, responsibility and personal freedom. Students and staff interact in a community atmosphere, teaching and learning from one another. Freedom of choice is at the heart of the school. With no prescribed curricula and the daily responsibility of participating in a democratically governed community, students have ample opportunity to practice independent decision-making. Our students develop into mature, competent and passionate individuals.
