Our History

The idea for Greene Hill School began when a group of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill parents, educators and friends were looking for a progressive school with small class sizes for their children. As the notion to create a new school took hold the planners wanted to ensure that the school was both local and affordable. In the fall of 2009, the first class of eight four and five year old children started learning together in a sunlit loft in Clinton Hill.  Designed as a small school where all children are well-known GHS has one class per grade level. We graduated our first class of 8th graders in June, 2017 and they are thriving in college.  Greene Hill School is located in a beautiful and spacious building at 39 Adelphi Street in Brooklyn and serves children in pre-K, kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school (through 8th grade).
