School Notes

  • In order to maximize every student's potential, all students receive a reading and/or writing tutorial that is specific to his/her unique learning style and needs. Greenwood's remedial language specialists are trained in Orton-Gillingham or Lindamood Belle. All classes are integrated so that students learn and apply literacy and organizational skills across the academic program.
  • Greenwood students 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 students to internalize organizational skills and strategies in all areas of their lives.
  • For students who demonstrate a need, Greenwood offers Speech and Language Therapy, Math Tutorials, Social Emotional Learning, and Occupational Therapy.
  • Dual college enrollment is offered through partnerships with the Community College of VT and Landmark College, where students are able to gain college or high school credits for courses taken.
  • 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-V. 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. However, once in Greenwood`s safe and supportive community, 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.
  • LD types supported: AD/HD, Dyslexia / Language-Based Learning Differences, Dyscalculia, Executive Function Skill Deficits, Social Emotional Learning
