Arts and Music Programs:
- Greenwood Friends School gives students the unique opportunity for hands-on, project based learning everyday. Students often work in mixed-age groups so that children can develop their gifts and talents in a collaborative setting. Students learn to work independently, as well, but always with respect for others in their learning community. Greenwood has a long tradition of valuing music and the arts which are all integrated into daily activities and long-term projects.
