Greenwood School


The mission of Greenwood School is to provide specialized college- and career-preparatory curriculum for middle and high school students with learning differences or difficulties.
Greenwood School—A different way of teaching, for a better way of learning.

At Greenwood School, we recognize that no two students are the same—and neither are their learning strengths and needs. That’s why we are dedicated to providing a challenging and supportive learning environment for middle through high school students experiencing difficulty with focus, who struggle with reading disabilities, need ADHD support, dyslexia, working memory deficit, executive function, or other learning differences.

As one of the premiere schools in Jacksonville, Greenwood offers ADHD support, dyslexia resources, and a full curriculum for students with a variety of learning differences and difficulties.

Academic accommodations are tailored to meet students’ learning strengths and needs—and to lead them from concrete skills to critical and abstract thinking.

Greenwood School’s academics are supported by enrichment programs that include art, drama, music, and physical education. In addition, opportunities for technology instruction and implementation are available in the classrooms, and in the library/media center. Unlike other schools in Jacksonville, Greenwood School gives students a unique opportunity to learn through techniques that are most effective for their specific strengths and needs. What’s more, every classroom at Greenwood School offers access to laptop computers for in-room student use. Teachers and students benefit from a sophisticated network of media and technology available in the classrooms and media center.

A setting that suits learning

Greenwood School’s Jacksonville campus is designed to enhance every aspect of learning, creating an enriching environment for students with learning differences. In addition to technology-supported interactive and collaborative learning environments for the core curriculum, Greenwood School houses a computer lab, a library/media center, an art room, a music room, and a full-size gymnasium.

A rarity among schools in Jacksonville, Greenwood School is home to a remarkable natural environment. Ten acres of protected wetlands provide immediate and in-depth opportunities for students to apply classroom instruction to real-world impacts. Greenwood students are routinely engaged in ongoing scientific studies of a multitude of environmental and wildlife issues, in partnership with professional organizations and universities across the country.

Greenwood School, founded in 1985, is fully accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools.

Understanding students who learn differently.

At many schools in Jacksonville—and across the country—students who struggle with different aspects of learning or a learning difficulty may be mislabeled or misunderstood. At Greenwood School, we understand that many bright students simply learn differently—and that no one style of teaching suits all.

Since we opened our doors in 1985, we have dedicated our efforts to appreciating, supporting and educating students experiencing difficulties with a wide variety of learning differences.

If you have a child with a learning difficulty, we encourage you to explore the different learning and teaching possibilities available at Greenwood School.
