Overview

Overview

The Greenwood School says

The Greenwood School is a boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 12. For over thirty years Greenwood has empowered bright and talented boys who face dyslexia, related language-based learning challenges, ADHD, and executive function deficits with the skills necessary to bridge the gap between their outstanding promise and present abilities. Greenwood offers a comprehensive, individualized remedial program balanced with an emphasis on enrichment programs designed to awaken students’ hidden talents. The result is a school that transforms lives by providing the best environment possible for students with specific learning challenges to realize their academic, social, and creative potentials. In order to maximize every boy’s potential, all students receive a language tutorial that is specific to his unique learning style and needs, all teachers are remedial language specialists, and all classes are integrated so that students learn and apply literacy and organizational skills across the academic program. Greenwood boys develop strengths and awaken hidden talents in well-developed art, drama, music, woodworking and athletics programs. Diagnostic-prescriptive teaching that is multisensory, structured, and sequential ensures effective, individualized programs for all students. Highly structured academic and residential programs enable Greenwood boys to internalize organizational skills and strategies in all areas of their lives. For boys who demonstrate a need, Greenwood offers Speech and Language Therapy, Math Tutorials, Social Pragmatics, and Occupational Therapy. Interscholastic sports and noncompetitive sports are open to any student who wishes to participate. Greenwood’s 100-acre, forested campus on a Vermont hillside offers miles of trails for hiking, biking, archery, and cross-country skiing; a 3-acre pond for canoeing, fishing, and ice skating; and a skate/bike park equipped with a halfpipe and dirt jumps. The Greenwood applicant should possess “average” to "above" average cognitive skills as measured on the WISC IV. When looking at borderline test scores it is encouraging to see variability in subtest scores that suggest areas of strength. Some Greenwood applicants may exhibit avoidance behaviors due to frustration and low self esteem resulting from their learning challenges. Once in Greenwood’s safe and supportive community, however, our students feel they are finally understood, and they experience the academic success they deserve for their efforts. Greenwood does not accept students with primary social, emotional, or behavioral difficulties. The Greenwood School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is approved by the state of Vermont and the New England Association of Independent Schools.
