We are committed to excellence: in language arts, in mathematics; physical, life and environmental sciences; geography and history; the arts, music, drama, foreign language, computer literacy, and physical education. We believe an enriched curriculum promotes a full awareness of the world, and respect for cultural differences. We are committed to developing environmental awareness and an appreciation of the natural world in order that our students become informed, responsible stewards of the land. The visual and performing arts are vital for we believe that creativity in art, music, movement, and drama enhances the child’s capacity to attain and synthesize all knowledge and concepts. The physical education program promotes skill growth, a sense of teamwork, fair play, and a lifelong healthy body awareness.
Three times a year, our students participate in the Encounter Week program. Further information can be found on our website.
One of the sports we really like to play at The Mountain School at Winhall is soccer. We also do rockcliming and fly fishing.
The Mayo Center is home to the Grace Stuart Orcutt Library, the Colwell Center for Global Understanding and the Student Lounge.
During the afternoon and on weekends Greenwood boys relax and recharge from academic demands by participating in many outdoor activities including fishing and canoeing at the pond; swimming at a nearby swimming hole; hiking and mountain biking on campus trails; skateboarding and biking at our own skate park.
Participating in community projects is a regular element of a Compass education -- we seek to balance the academic classroom environment with real-world problem solving and genuine contributions.
Each year our seniors take a missions trip together. It's always fun to hear the stories when they get back.
