At The Green Vale School, we inspire and challenge Pre-Nursery through 8th Grade students to be their best, cultivating intellect, character, and confidence as a foundation for success. We are a joyful school community where every child is known.
Belonging to something larger than oneself is an enduring hallmark of the Green Vale experience. When we belong and are valued, we can reach our highest potential. We each have a responsibility to bring our best selves to our community and to serve others generously and willingly.
The components of character are displayed in how we conduct ourselves and impact others. At the heart of character are qualities such as kindness, integrity, and inclusivity. Through strong character, we are able to translate Green Vale and life experiences into change that betters our world.
Respect is our starting point for honoring both shared beliefs and differences. Diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and identities strengthen Green Vale. We show respect through learning and leading with open minds and compassion.
Reflection fosters intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, and is key for personal and academic growth. Pausing to learn from academic, creative, athletic, and interpersonal experiences illuminates what is most meaningful or valuable in each experience.
Thriving in life calls for perseverance and an ability to apply skills and knowledge successfully under varied circumstances. The more adeptly we do this, the better equipped we are to seize opportunities, address challenges, and use our agency to achieve goals.
Green Vale will be a model for Pre-Nursery through 8th Grade educational excellence, inspiring graduates to put ideas into action for the greater good. We will create a culture of continuous learning led by faculty and marked by a commitment to research, learning design, and diverse perspectives.
The Green Vale School believes in diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values of our community. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation. We prioritize the importance of fostering a diversity of ideas and perspectives as part of the learning process. In a community where respect is a guiding principle, learning and compassion are enhanced when a variety of curricular ideas and student perspectives are present and appreciated. Each student contributes his or her unique value as a member of our supportive community of students, faculty, and families. Recruiting and welcoming families and staff members of varied backgrounds, races, and cultures helps generate a variety of experiences and viewpoints, thus reinforcing the School's mission and strengthening the community.
