Core Values

GreenWood Charter School supports and embraces diversity in all its forms, including differences in ethnicity, cultural and religious heritage, socio - economic background, geographic origin, and family structure. We strive to provide our students with a rich, inclusive, expeditionary learning experience that reflects the environment in which we live and to foster a safe atmosphere where every member of our community is respected and multiple viewpoints can be peacefully expressed. GreenWood Charter School actively seeks to achieve diversity in all aspects of school life including the composition of our student body, faculty, curriculum, administration, and board of directors. We believe this commitment to diversity will help our children successfully navigate the changing world they will one day inherit.

Our Motto: "Educating the Whole Child"

Healthy Habits – We know that to have a bright mind we need to have a healthy body. We practice math and reading, eat lots of fruits & vegetables with our family and friends, actively exercise and speak positive words. We develop self-control through will power as we resist urges, fears, and peer pressure. We practice mindfulness to focus and think before we act. We are mindful.

Environmental Stewardship – We know our choices have consequences. We conduct every interaction honestly. We set intention. We commit to act. We reflect on growth and the impact of our decisions. We safeguard the environment and create positive change within our communities. Our commitment to the greater good transcends personal concerns. Our work has value. We are grateful.

Achievement – We know that to succeed, we need to know how we fail. Knowing ourselves first, we focus on growth with an open mindset. My ability and competence grow with my effort. We ask questions that solve authentic problems. We strive to surpass yesterday's accomplishments, and prepare diligently to excel in every arena. We have the confidence to compete when success is not assured. We persevere in the face of challenge, and view every failure as the basis for a future success. We objectively analyze past experiences to improve our knowledge. We are passionate about excellence. We have grit.

Leadership – We assume personal responsibility for achieving extraordinary results, but we know we accomplish more when we work together. We are accountable to each other to focus on growth and the greater good. We work every day to build integrity by doing what we say we are going to do. We have trust for each other. We believe we can succeed at any challenge. We are optimistic.

Thinking Creatively – We hunger to know more, and remain committed to continuous learning. We are driven to learn, to teach, to uncover the secrets of the natural world, and to expand the body of knowledge. We encourage and reward innovation and industry. We greet new ideas openly and optimistically. We know positive thinking will build a positive school. We have zest.

Honoring Diversity – We each belong to this community and have compassion and respect for others. We value conclusions drawn from the rigorous analysis of data and not merely from popular opinion. We develop the social intelligence necessary to embrace the diversity of people, perspectives, and ideas. We value honest relationships, communicate openly, and support each other. We collaborate for success, drawing on each other's complementary strengths and skills. We care.


At GreenWood, we seek to educate students in the areas of mind, body, and soul. Having academic capability alone does not necessarily constitute a well-rounded individual, and therefore, we have our 6 HEALTH Values to develop habits of scholarship in each of our students Student Seedlings realize that effort of mind and body are necessary for success. Seedlings know that collaboration and responsibility are integral parts of all work. Seedlings are self-regulated and attuned to their own progress in all of life's situations.
