Thanks to widely-popularized educational and neuroscientific research, it seems like everyone is (finally!) talking about progressive education! We all want our children to be engaged citizens, stewards of the earth, joyful learners, and innovative thinkers—a radical idea when Green Acres School championed it in the 1930s. Now we know that cultivating this type of scholarship and leadership is more essential than ever—and Green Acres is proud to be among the original progressive schools in the nation.
On Sunday, October 28 from 1:30-3:30 PM, families are invited to discover what authentic progressive education looks like at Green Acres School’s “Hands-On, Not Heads-Down!” Discovery Day. The afternoon will showcase all that progressive education has to offer through a variety of challenging, engaging, and fun activities. Learn more here.
There's something for everyone at Discovery Day and this event is not to be missed. Current and prospective families are welcome, as well as curious community members! RSVP to Judy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Middle School Teacher
"I love working at Green Acres because I can devise and develop unique courses in three subject areas that I am passionate about with highly motivated and wonderful teenagers.
I lived overseas for six years, speak three languages, and have traveled to over 50 countries, taking full advantage of the photographic possibilities."
In accordance with the Maryland State Department of Education, Green Acres teachers hold bachelors degrees (or equivalents) from accredited institutions of higher education. Many of our staff members also hold masters and doctoral degrees. Ongoing training in progressive education principles and techniques is a regular part of professional development for all staff.
