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 in a blended learning environment. The District Strategic Plan is focused on providing personalized learning opportunities for every student in order to meet the academic, personal and interpersonal needs of our learners. Our three district strategic goals are, “To ensure each student achieves optimal growth within the core academic disciplines; to ensure each student develops the capacity to be responsible for his or her own physical and mental health; and to ensure each student demonstrates growth in personal development and civic responsibility.”
The Greenwich Public Schools are committed to the Connecticut Core State Standards (CCSS), 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. The CCSS also support the Vision of the Graduate.
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, student goal setting and increased student voice and choice.
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.
