The Greenwood School Featured on PBS

Looks like I’m a little late to the game on this one, but I wanted to bring attention to this segment on The Greenwood School that aired over the winter on PBS’s National Education Report. Tom wrote about his visit to Greenwood’s campus in an earlier post about junior boarding schools for LD students. The video acts as a perfect compliment to his observations about the school and the type of students it serves.

Here’s a bit of background in case you’re not familiar with The Greenwood School:

Greenwood is a boarding school in Southern Vermont dedicated to taking bright and talented boys with learning differences and learning disabilities (LD) such as dyslexia, attentional difficulties (ADD / ADHD), or executive functioning deficits and empowering them with the skills and strategies necessary to bridge the gap between their outstanding promise and present abilities.

  • Therapeutic boarding schools are aimed towards students who are having difficulty at home or in a traditional school setting. While preparing students for college can also be a goal for these schools, these schools are equipped to handle students who are facing challenges such as behavioral / emotional problems, substance abuse, or significant learning differences. Boarding School Review does not list therapeutic boarding schools.
