Greenwood Goes Coed

Caryl Frankenberger, Head of School
For 40 years, The Greenwood School in Putney, VT., has been a boarding and day school for boys grades 6-12 who have language based learning challenges, ADHD and executive function weaknesses. We are excited to announce that Greenwood is preparing to be a coeducational institution.

The Greenwood School has always been a haven for students who have language based learning differences. We deliver innovative, research-proven programs that empower our students with knowledge, competencies, talents, life skills and the earned confidence they need to succeed. All students receive language tutorial focused on reading remediation with additional focus on speed and comprehension. With our integrated support services, our students are able to meet in small groups or have 1:1 speech language and occupational therapy as well as social skills coaching. They can also enroll in a cognitive training program that rewires the brain for improved reading fluency and rate, as well as processing speed. We document our students progress. We are a data driven school; we don’t just talk about progress, we document it.

In addition to academics, Greenwood’s 100 acre campus immerses students in the natural world. The sledding hill is one step off the boardwalk next to the dorm’s front door. The bike paths start at the back stoop. The campus pond, with its bass, turtles, ducks and rack of canoes and kayaks, is a short walk through the gardens, past the orchard. This proximity to nature enables hands-on learning upon which a Greenwood student thrives, fostering a renewed sense of self.

Greenwood is a school where learning by doing is respected and encouraged, and where gifts and talents are celebrated.
We believe students with learning differences have inherent potential that is maximized in a small school setting. Greenwood’s environment brings together individualized curriculum, social emotional learning, expert teaching, and a nurturing, empowering community, centered on positive reinforcement. We invite you to come and visit and see us in action.
