A Greenwood School Student:

  • Often struggles to connect with academic material
  • Often has difficulty with personal organization and/or time management skills
  • May have difficulty maintaining the pace and/or written workload of classes
  • Exhibits behavior that is conducive to a positive learning environment
  • May struggle with social confidence
  • Has goals and dreams that they may have been told elsewhere were not possible

Although Greenwood does engage students’ individual learning styles, we prefer to speak in terms of a students’ individual strengths and needs. Additionally, we refer to a student’s learning differences rather than as a learning disability.

The foundation of Greenwood School programs is our specialized instruction, which includes the expert use of research-proven practices beneficial to all students, but especially to students with specific learning differences. We provide strategies, supports, and accommodations to create learning opportunities that effectively address the individual needs of students and enable them to experience success with a challenging, college-preparatory curriculum.

Greenwood School provides the most appropriate balance of challenge and support for all students; we are recognized experts in the education of Jacksonville area students with a variety of challenges, including ADHD, auditory and/or visual processing delays, autism spectrum disorders, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties, general anxieties, and other differences.

In addition to core subjects, Greenwood students benefit from interscholastic athletics, National Honor Society, Student Council, and a variety of other extracurricular activities and clubs, such as Archery, Chess, Ecology/Zoology, Fencing, and Running. Core classes are supplemented by enrichment courses: Art, Band, Coding, Drama, Graphic Design, History electives, Physical Education, Science electives, Sociology, and many other options.
