- The foundation of Greenwood School programs is our specialized instruction, which includes the expert use of research-proven practices beneficial to all students, but especially to students with specific learning differences. We provide strategies, supports, and accommodations to create learning opportunities that effectively address the individual needs of students and enable them to experience success with a challenging, college-preparatory curriculum.In short, our curriculum and classroom practices are designed to provide the most appropriate balance of challenge and support for all students, whether they typically experience difficulty and struggles academically or have not been challenged enough in the past!
- Approximately two-thirds of Greenwood`s graduate s continue on to colleges, universities, trade and technical schools, and/or career-path apprenticeship training. With proper supports, our students perform at or above grade-level work; in fact, many outperform their peers across the nation, as evidenced by annual ACT ASPIRE score profiles.
- Students are not only supported academically to achieve the rigorous curriculum standards, but they are also fully supported in social-emotional learning experiences. Greenwood faculty and staff incorporate explicit social skills instruction, social behavior modeling, scenario-based analysis of social interactions and larger societal issues. Our full-time School Counselor provides individual support whenever needed.
- The result is a well-rounded graduate with as many future opportunities open as possible! Greenwood also provides high school students with many of the positive aspects of a traditional high school experience: National Honor Society, social events, homecoming, prom, athletics, clubs, student government, and community impact volunteer opportunities.
- Middle School at Greenwood is focused not only upon the mastery of academic skills, but also on helping students to discover their academic strengths. Students learn how to apply research-based learning strategies that work best for their unique learning needs. Specialized instruction by our highly trained faculty provides appropriate supports and accommodations for each student`s needs and we foster an educational environment that is safe, positive, encouraging, and challenging.
- In addition to core academic subjects, middle school students enjoy a variety of enrichment courses, such as Art, Drama, Music, Physical Education, and social and study skills and strategies in each grade.
- Academic instruction is supported by our deliberate integration of social-emotional learning (SEL), social coaching and counseling when needed, and a positive environment characterized by kindness and mutual respect.
