Greene Hill School
Technology Teacher
Part-time position
Greene Hill School (GHS) is a newly established progressive independent school for children ages four to
fourteen. It was started in 2008 with a single class of four and five­year­old students. Now in 2016, there are
150 children up through 7th grade.

through an interdisciplinary curriculum, appreciation of critical thinking and open­ended investigation of
neighborhood and beyond. Founded with the understanding that community is the backbone of society,
Greene Hill School guides children to become dedicated members of a diverse, democratic society.
Greene Hill School is dedicated to achieving a racially and economically diverse balance of children and
families reflecting the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill Brooklyn community. Understanding that tuition is often a
barrier to diversity in independent schools, it is the goal of Greene Hill to keep tuition reasonable with a sliding

cultural and socioeconomic community in which GHS resides.
