Mission & Vision
Mission & Vision Overview
Green Fields School (GFS) will demonstrate that all children can exceed gifted level performance when a comprehensive curriculum is coupled with effective educational practices. Accelerated Learning Laboratory (ALL), ALL’s instructional model will confirm that schools and instructional practices are the predominant factors influencing student performance, not ethnicity, social status, economic privilege, gender, or a child’s neighborhood. GFS will demonstrate a 21st Century instructional model of formal education in which student performance will exceed all historical attempts to produce advanced learning. The GFS community will embrace the belief that all children will exhibit genius, in abundance, when allowed to cultivate innate talents in a challenging, supportive, and civil environment.
