Greenhills School

  • Greenhills school is a one-of-a-kind community where we bring out our students' brilliance. Where students learn their strengths, then learn to use those strengths to make a positive difference in the world. For more than 50 years, Greenhills has maintained its steady focus on nurturing and educating curious, creative, and responsible citizens.
  • Students and faculty work together to create an environment where students and teachers know each other as more than a name on a classroom door or a line or two in a gradebook and cooperate to help our students realize their full potential in preparation for college and beyond.

School Notes

  • SMALL CLASSES. GREAT TEACHERS. At Greenhills, our average class size is 15. And while 75 percent of our teachers hold advanced degrees, 100 percent of them are completely committed to bringing out the best in their students.
  • STUDENT SUCCESS STEMS FROM SCIENCE, TECH, ENGINEERING, AND MATH. Whether you're building a robot from scratch on one of our two robotics teams or conducting ground-breaking research with one of our academic or industry partners as part of our Advanced Research Program, as a Greenhills student you'll push the limits of the possible -- both before and after graduation. OUR HUMANITIES PROGRAM FEEDS THE SOUL.Catch our student jazz band at a storied Ann Arbor music venue. Or spend a morning assembly listening to nationally-known professional musicians. Sit at the potter's wheel, take the stage for a theatrical excursion, or argue either side of a question with our championship debate team. Whatever your artistic passion, Greenhills nurtures it.
  • 50 YEARS OF ATHLETICS. 25 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS. Gryphons compete. But more importantly, our athletic department -- one of just 25 in state history to be named an "Exemplary Program" by the Michigan High School Athletic Association and the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association -- does more than just win championships. Our 20 varsity sports are organized around the idea of balance: in athletics, academics, and life. Gryphon athletics is synonymous with strong coaching, sportsmanship, and success that lasts a lifetime.
  • LEARNING DOESN'T STOP AT THE CLASSROOM DOOR. NEITHER DOES THE GREENHILLS CURRICULUM. Whether they're studying ecosystems in one of our on-campus ponds, researching cutting-edge science at the University of Michigan through our Advanced Research Program, or simply enjoying a class trip to Canada, Greenhills students enjoy exhilarating opportunities to bring learning to life.
  • OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY STRETCHES BACK TO OUR FOUNDING. Greenhills was established in 1968, with equality as one of its central visions. We live that vision today through the promotion of diversity as integral to the ethos and practices of the school: as a source of strength that enriches teaching and learning.
