School Notes

  • Green Fields School has been helping prepare students to succeed at the best colleges in the nation and in life, since 1933. We have a proud tradition of excellence, and a teaching philosophy of experiential learning with hands-on projects that go well beyond the classroom to truly inspire our students - and teach them to think differently, critically and responsibly.Our class sizes are small, and our curriculum both innovative and comprehensive. Our faculty is equally exceptional. Talented teachers encourage students to explore their passions and potential in academics, the arts and athletics, as well as through programs like Senior Masterwork, Beyond Boundaries and Issue Day.As Tucson`s first independent K-12 school, Green Fields has built a caring community of students, teachers, and parents. Our historic buildings beautifully serve the academic, creative, and fitness needs of 21st century learning. Our campus sets the stage for an exceptional education that creates confident, curious, academically independent students.

Loved Green Fields, beautiful campus and teachers are the best. The classes are also small, my graduating class was only 15 students! It was really great and the college counseling helped me get into a really good college. Best school in Tucson -- worth it.

Green Fields has been an environment where my 2 children have gained confidence enough to advocate for themselves during interactions with peers as well as adults. The learning structure involves overlap with the older and younger students so all groups get familiar with interactions outside of their own social circle and even age range. The campus is unique in that there is lots of outdoor green space to have outdoor classes or just stretch your legs. There is a pool, track, soccer field, and a large grassy space in the middle of the campus. There is also a performance stage where students practice public performance from kindergarten on up. The sports program is very inclusive and has a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and working hard.

Green Fields is a wonderful place. Rich in history, diversity, and quality. Our kids are supported, our Parent Association is active, our sports are celebrated, and the academics are challenging and supportive. Our kids are learning to be good people, hard workers, and their efforts and successes are celebrated.
