Why should I send my child to a school that ends in 8th grade?
Being at a school that culminates with grade eight affords students the luxury of choosing exactly which type of secondary school will be the best fit.  When it comes time to choose a high school, eighth graders at GHS are given direction to help articulate their hopes and goals for secondary school.

Who are the students at Greene Hill?
Our students come from all over Brooklyn. Our middle school is comprised partly of students who have attended Greene Hill’s lower division and partly of students new to the school.

How will you help my child get into High School?
Students leave GHS well-prepared with a love of learning and a clear sense of themselves as an important member of their community as they embark upon their high school experience. Our rich academic curriculum and emphasis on critical thinking and communication will enable them to gain entry into the high school of their choice.21
