Greenwood Mission Statement

Greenwood Friends School teaches children to think critically, creatively, and compassionately. The school provides a challenging and supportive academic environment, guided by the Quaker principles of peace, integrity, equality, community, simplicity, and stewardship.

Greenwood Friends School implements its mission in the following ways:

  • We nurture a child’s natural curiosity and encourage students to “learn how to learn.”
  • Instruction is student-centric, acknowledging each child’s learning style, abilities, and rate of development.
  • Flexible classroom groupings allow children to progress in each subject at their own level of ability
  • We believe that children reach their highest potential through hands-on and investigative activities that are relevant to tehir lives.
  • Students are challenged to recognize and value their own potential and to appreciate the potential of others.
  • We strive to help children build a strong self-image and to be their own advocate.
  • We value a diverse school community in which students work cooperatively
  • We reach out to embrace the local and global communities believing that each person can make a difference in the world.
  • Meeting for Worship encourages spiritual and personal growth in a centered atmosphere.

Greenwood Friends School accepts children without regard to race, gender sexual orientation, economic, social or religious background.
