Mission Statement

surface tensionGreene Hill School is an independent lower and middle school for children that serves the need of the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill and surrounding Brooklyn communities for affordable and progressive education.

We actively involve families in their children’s school and children in their own education. We promote learning through an interdisciplinary curriculum, appreciation of critical thinking and open-ended investigation of neighborhood and beyond. Founded with the understanding that community is the backbone of society, Greene Hill School guides children to become dedicated members of a diverse, democratic society.

Our Commitment to Diversity6th grade running

Greene Hill School is dedicated to achieving a racially and economically diverse balance of children and families reflecting the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill/Wallabout Brooklyn community. Understanding that tuition is often a barrier to diversity in independent schools, it is the goal of Greene Hill to keep tuition reasonable with a sliding scale based on income. In this way, GHS maintains a learning community that is representative of the rich cultural and socioeconomic community in which GHS resides.
