Welcome to Nathanael Greene Middle School!
Here at Nathanael Greene Middle School, we are committed to excellence in education. We feel that it is vital to show enthusiasm for learning and hope that children want to attend school for academics as well as social and emotional development. Research shows the correlation between student attendance and academic performance. We agree with that notion and want to ensure that Every Student is in school, On Time, Everyday! We encourage you to support us by helping to communicate that concept to our students at home.
Nathanael Greene is a grade six through eight school located in the city of Providence, Rhode Island. Over one thousand children participate in a rigorous academic program and a variety of extra-curricular activities. We also have an English Language Learner Program (ELL) for students who are speakers of another language other than English.
As with any school, we place a strong emphasis on academics and college and career readiness. However, we also want our school to be a place where students learn social skills that will support their age appropriate development. This will allow students to work through their problems, learn how to relate to and communicate with peers and adults; as well as establish true friendships. We want our students to be problem solvers, creative thinkers and be able to advocate for themselves as well as to show empathy for others.
Perhaps one of the most important experiences students have in our school is sharing common academic learning with a diverse student body and interactions with supportive educators from varying backgrounds. The middle school experience provides an environment that will help our students transition from elementary to high school. As educators, we know we can help students celebrate their personal successes and academic growth. We want Nathanael Greene Middle School to be recognized as a school that prides itself on serving students academically, emotionally and socially. At Greene… We strive to be Great on Purpose! Join us!
