Students have been diagnosed with: dyslexia, specific language-based learning disabilities/learning differences (LD); receptive language and/or expressive language deficits; executive functioning deficits; attention difficulties (ADD or ADHD); disorders of written expression; dysgraphia; or, speech and language needs.
You will often find many learning differences clustered together in the learning profiles of most Greenwood students.
I found the Greenwood students and faculty exceptional.
Together they have built an amazing community. It is a true family where students are very excited about learning. Kids are very happy, and energized by their surroundings. I heard stories about hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, skate boarding, skiing, flashlight tag, and baking bread in and out door oven. The school has a new, and expanded wood shop, where the boys build villages with “peeps” and incorporate them into their other academic classes. I met a variety of budding musicians who participate in school bands.
Greenwood forges a deep partnership with the family and child throughout the student’s learning and educational experience at school. The school’s structure frees the boys to be kids/themselves. I came away with the true meaning of “family” from morning circle to the weekend activities. Greenwood is a great school for specific learning styles and where students leave with self confidence.
