North Street School is a neighborhood school serving approximately 400 students from preschool through grade 5. We are located on 20 beautiful acres in the central part of Greenwich, Connecticut. Our school is proud to offer a comprehensive, cognitively engaging and rigorous educational program that includes English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, technology, media, physical education, and other related services such as school psychology and speech therapy. The Greenwich Public Schools are implementing a new set of standards from Kindergarten through grade twelve. These standards, now called the Connecticut Core State Standards (CCSS), are designed to prepare students for college and career readiness. The standards help teachers ensure their students have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful by providing clear goals for student learning. Our district is in year three of full implementation of the Connecticut Core State Standards this year. We have aligned our units of study in English language arts and math to these standards. In addition, the CCSS support the Vision of the Graduate. (Click this link for further detailed information on the VoG)
This year marks the third year in our district’s Digital Learning Initiative. As we move into this year our students and parents will have the opportunity to engage in many new learning opportunities as we roll out our 1:1 iPad program. Beginning this fall, every student from pre-k through grade five will receive their own iPad Air to use at school and at home (grades 2-5). We will be exploring new and exciting ways to enhance our instructional practices through the use of technology.
North Street School has a highly experienced, talented, and dynamic team of professionals who are dedicated to the success of every student. As a school community we believe that building a positive learning environment, where all members are valued and respected for their unique strengths and differences, is fundamental to student success. By fostering a sense of curiosity and a love of learning in our students we help them become responsible, self-motivated learners. Our instructional focus is on increasing the level of cognitive engagement of our students through rigorous tasks.
North Street School is blessed with the support of an energetic, enthusiastic and involved parent body devoted to supporting the efforts of the staff and the success of our students. Our PTA sponsors a variety of special events and programs throughout the school year that enhance and enrich the educational experience of our youngsters and contributes immeasurably to our sense of community and love of learning.
We are looking forward to another year filled with excitement, curiosity and community building.
