Each and every day, Green Woods' teaching team provides our students with dynamic learning experiences that focus on the relationship between humans and the natural world. Our unique school setting includes a multi-acre outdoor learning laboratory made up of a pond, streams, wetlands, and more. These areas provide the perfect setting for creative teachers to enhance in-class learning experiences by directly connecting the indoor and outdoor classrooms.
Prospective teachers must be committed to supporting a teaching and learning environment that utilizes the outdoor classroom and promotes student success within a framework of collaboration and teamwork. Teachers must also bring their personal strengths to the team to support our students by both differentiating instruction and minimizing interruptions to the learning environment. We believe that all students have a right to learn within an environment that promotes academic excellence as well as an environment that is free of disruptions.
In addition to sound classroom instructional practices, prospective teaching candidates must be committed to developing within children the knowledge and skills that foster an environmental ethic leading to active participation and environmental stewardship.
The mission of Green Woods Charter School is to provide children in grades K through 8 with the opportunity to be active, knowledgeable and conscientious young investigators by fostering a keen understanding of the interrelatedness and interdependence of our local and global existence.
