Sarah Greenwood K-8 School

  •  s. greenwood

    We are a K1-8 school, and pride ourselves in the variety of programs available to our students. We have a dual-language program in grades K1-4 (growing one grade per year), and specialized student support services in our Therapeutic Learning Center. We use Restorative Justice as our guiding philosophy for student and community support.

    • We use Lesley University's Literacy Collaborative Initiative and have two coaches that support teachers in literacy instruction. We also have a reading recovery specialist and resource room specialist to support students.
    • Our Specialist teachers bring enrichment to our students through Visual Journalism, Music, Physical Education, Science, and Computers.
    • We have a brand new bilingual library where our librarian assists students in finding exciting literature, and where we host authors and guest series.
    • We have on site counseling and student support services through Franciscan Hospital and City Connects. 
    • We are an extended day school and have partnerships with Playworks, Girl Scouts, City Year, Sportsman Tennis, America SCORES, Debate, Doc Wayne, YW Girls Health, and Discovering Justice.
