Greene Hill School

Brooklyn, NY

Greene Hill School is an independent lower and middle school for children that serves the need of the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill and surrounding Brooklyn communities for affordable and progressive education.

The 10s class is learning how historians study the past. Students asked their grown ups to help them learn about the meaning of their names, tell them a funny family story, and help them to investigate an important family artifact. The 10s then used this information to write paragraphs. We are proud to share our family artifacts stories with you!
