What is Greenfield?
Greenfield is a new school model designed to help develop the best prepared students in the world. Achievement First’s Greenfield schools will provide rigorous, high-quality instruction within a nurturing school community focused on developing self-motivated learners, problem-solvers and leaders. Students will benefit from more small group learning, greater access to technology, deep and meaningful enrichment opportunities (such as music, martial arts & STEM inventions), and extended field trips that allow students to go deeper in an area of interest and experience hands-on learning in more authentic and engaging ways.
To Best Prepare Our Students, We Aim to Achieve Four Outcomes
Our Design is Anchored by a Combination of Three Guiding Principles
We believe the unique combination of these three anchors is a powerful space for innovation. When visiting the most innovative and effective schools across the country, we found great examples of schools that did one or two of the three anchors well, but were hard pressed to find a school that did all three exceptionally well. Therefore, the Greenfield schools will sit at the intersection of these three anchors, demonstrating a model that simultaneously holds accelerated expectations for all areas of learning while enabling a strong sense of student ownership, combined with a sense of community and belonging that will help students attain excellence in college and beyond.
