"There is more in you than you think." Kurt Hahn

MISSION

Our mission is to provide a quality holistic education to all students by providing opportunities for them to be active, knowledgeable, creative, and conscientious individuals. GreenWood inspires a healthy balance in life through healthy eating habits, exercise, personal discovery, service learning, and environmental stewardship.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

GreenWood is a free public K-8 charter school focusing on holistic education. GreenWood was chartered to educate students, engage parents and connect with our community to support a culture of healthy habits for our students to grow academically. Our vision is that every GreenWood student will gain an understanding and appreciation for all aspects of their life. Student achievement includes three dimensions: Mastery of Skills and Knowledge, High-quality Work, and Character. To accomplish our vision, GreenWood uses six core HEALTH Values: Healthy Habits, Environmental Stewardship, Achievement, Leadership, Thinking Creatively and Honoring Diversity.

Greenwood partners with EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning), a national school organization. EL partners with schools to improve student achievement through an inquiry and project-based approach. EL schools inspire the motivation to learn, engage teachers and students in new levels of focus and effort, and transform schools into places where students and adults become leaders of their own learning.
