Philosophy

The Greenwood School provides intelligent young men with learning disabilities a unique and powerful educational program proven to help them build successful futures. For over thirty-five years, our boarding school’s focus has been empowering boys to maximize their academic, social and creative potentials.

The Greenwood School offers students a singular experience.  Our industry leading 2:1 student: teacher ratio, small environment (50 students), family culture, personalized programming, and integrated support services (Occupational Therapy, Social Pragmatics, Speech and Language, Counseling, Executive Function and Life Skills Coaching, Assistive Technology) set us apart from other schools.  This unique combination of qualities enables Greenwood to work effectively with high potential students who struggle with complex learning challenges, ADHD, and/or executive dysfunction.

Greenwood’s small size not only offers students intensive learning opportunities, but also opportunities for leadership. Successes are noticed and celebrated at Greenwood, and students develop confidence, independence, and self-advocacy skills before transitioning to a more traditional high school or to college. Through strong enrichment programs—in outdoor adventure, athletics and the arts—our students discover their passions and develop their strengths. By blending remediation and other educational therapies into the broader curriculum, we are uniquely positioned to help students prepare for the next step in their education.
