School Vision Statement


Good citizenship and academic excellence are priorities of the William S. Greene elementary School. All students are individually supported and challenged to meet and exceed the Massachusetts Standards. We are responsible for ensuring that our students become responsible adults, literate thinkers, and problem solvers with an enthusiasm for life-long learning.  We support our students’ learning by emphasizing a targeted, data driven and standard-based tiered response to intervention model. 


Collaboration and communication are the keys to successful education. We model opportunities to maximize parental and community participation that benefit a student’s overall growth.   As a school family, we intend to provide a safe, supportive and intellectually stimulating learning environment that promotes a culture in which hard work and responsibility are valued while embedding a tradition of academic excellence in our school’s cultural ethos.  All adults and students are expected to exhibit responsible and respectful behavior.  We acknowledge participation and achievement through regular recognition programs.
