Our Motto: ‘Rooted in Knowledge’
Rooted in Knowledge - is etched in all that we do at Greenwood High. Reflecting the core values of our rich heritage, we aspire to build strong foundations for our students based on the most powerful value of all knowledge.
Our Vision: ‘A Fresh Approach’
Our vision is to continually use the very latest means and methods of education. The decision made at the time of founding the school was to keep traditions while moving towards a pragmatic approach. We try to examine every practice, weigh it against prevailing and available options and then use only the very best. This is a continuous approach. Time and time again we inspect our own methods of operation, spend effort researching the best practices worldwide and then decide on the next course of action.
Our Ethos: 'The Superlative Synergy'
As can be seen in the striking contrast of the motto and vision, the school believes in blending the best of the old and the new. To tap into the unlimited potential of the technologies of tomorrow. to instill some of the values which have been admired through the ages. We, at Greenwood High honestly believe that these two guiding principles are the best.. for both students and the faculty. We encourage our staff and students alike to be ‘Rooted in Knowledge’ while always ready to take ‘A Fresh Approach’ in everything they do.
To educate young people in ways that prepare them to be active, free thinking, and socially responsible citizens in a democratic society. Our mission is to develop the intellectual, aesthetic, moral, physical, social and emotional potential of the students. The school atmosphere fosters the allegiance of the students to their cultural heritage, and promotes respect and tolerance between students and teachers. The students are rooted to their culture and are ready to accept any new challenge with a fresh approach towards learning.
Freshness in approach, Openness of enquiry, breadth of study, creativity in argument and invention, independence of mind, and ambition for real quality: these are the keynotes in our approach to education, and we hope our students will embrace them with energy. The harmonious relationship between student and teacher is vital to our success. We believe in encouraging intellectual and cultural diversity, and aim at developing our pupils’ sense of responsibility towards the wider community.
It is also our aim to offer a dynamic environment where each student is challenged and encouraged to become a critical and compassionate thinker, dedicated learner for life, a contributing member of the local and global community, showing respect and understanding for other cultures and acknowledging that others can be different and also right. The school pledges not to make its children apprehensive of their limitations. Instead we encourage them to discover their own potential and develop it in our ‘Total learning Environment’.
The school provides excellent national and international education through the promotion of high academic standards, international understanding, parental involvement, and strives to be a centre of professional and curriculum development. The school’s endeavor will be to create global citizens who are collaborative, communicative, enquiring, respectful and creative individuals with a passion for lifelong learning. Greenwood High school students will be encouraged to integrate effectively into the local, national and international communities through the diverse opportunities afforded to them.
