Greenwood teachers invite critical thinking in the exploration of past and present World History. Our younger students first learn about geography and world cultures, providing the framework for studying a wider spectrum of humanities in our High School.
With such a small student body we are able to design higher level courses based on interest beyond our required college preparatory classes in U.S. and World History. Students looking for deeper historic exploration have gone on to study everything from the Viet Nam era to Contemporary Russian History: The Bolsheviks to Putin.
Every Greenwood student is required to take Civics and Government, learning how the three branches of U.S. government affect policy. Understanding how financial and government systems operate to serve society is especially engaging at Greenwood where approximately 20% of the students come from countries outside of the United States.
The goal is to educate our young students on a macro level, encouraging them to be participants in their own future governance starting here on campus. At Greenwood, our School Council provides faculty, staff, and students ongoing opportunities to shape school policy, events, and student life.
