where learning revolves around real world challenges and is highly contextual and individualized. We don't simply teach the WHERE and WHEN, but go much deeper. We challenge our students to ask the WHY and HOW. With this approach, our kids understand more, and have a boarder perspective not easily found in other academic environments. Green Fields students are more curious, more introspective, and gain valuable insight into their own heads and hearts.
Green Fields has a proud history of excellence that dates back more than 80 years. Our philosophy of educational excellence, small class sizes, unique enrichment opportunities and exceptional teachers encourage students to think independently and develop personally — from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Where natural curiosity is piqued by inspired teaching and hands-on, problem-solving opportunities. More
Where critical thinking is developed, and individual academic discovery is linked to global social responsibility. More
Where small class size, close relationships with faculty and exciting class offerings — including Honors and AP courses — culminate in a passion for learning. More
In 1933 Howard and Rubie Atchley founded the school on a 77-acre alfalfa farm.
The original name was the Circle Double A Green Fields Preparatory School for Boys.
The school opened with five students.
In 1979 the school was renamed Green Fields Country Day School. Astronaut Dick Gordon dedicated the new gym in 1987. Green Fields was the first school in the United States to form an exchange program with students in the former Soviet Union.
Today, Green Fields offers a balance between the traditions of the past and preparation for the future. Academic rigor, well roundedness of experience, individualized instruction and small class size were the foundation of our reputation in 1933 and remain essential today.
