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.
