Thematic Study

Each academic year Greenwood Friends School uses a cross-curriculum theme to integrate studies across traditional academic disciplines and age groups. The theme for 2017-18 is A Walk in the Woods, which holds great promise for expanding children’s appreciation of nature and stewardship of the environment.

Early Childhood Center

Greenwood Friends School is very excited for the opening of the Early Childhood Center in 2018. This center will serve 3-, 4-, and 5-year olds in a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

Greenwood Friends School

Simon Stumbris, 2018 8th grade GFS graduate, created a song about his Greenwood Years for his eighth grade Let Your Life Speak project. He also wrote a poem for each of our school themes for the years he attended GFS.

As a culminating project, our 8th graders develop a creative expression project that demonstrates in some way what their time at Greenwood Friends School has meant to them and how the Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship have come to life through their experiences at Greenwood. We ask students to meld their interests, passions and gifts to create what we call the Let Your Life Speak project. Simon is a passionate communicator and an enthusiastic rapper and poet.

Greenwood Friends School

Jacob Gilbert, 2018 8th grade GFS graduate, had this to say about his Let Your Life Speak creative expression project, "My eighth grade project represents the path ahead. It is littered in obstacles that I will overcome later in life. There are small things along the way that I will try to slow down and look at their beauties and focus on nature. The spices are written on rocks in the path because I should remember them on my journey to truly enjoy it."
