A Fond Farewell to our Amazing Head of School, Joshua Laplante ( 2015-2024)

The Greene School is very thankful to our Head of School, Joshua Laplante, for his dedicated leadership over the past 9 years. Josh was hired in 2015 after a very thorough search by the Board of Directors and our stakeholders. Joshua Laplante is a champion for students, committed to their success and learning every single day. He is dedicated to the environmental mission of The Greene School and has used his time as the Head of School to create a learning environment rich in opportunities for students.
Josh has been instrumental in developing the AP program and dual enrollment program at TGS, as well the work ready program. He has forged strong relations with environmental groups in Rhode Island, and has developed our upcoming Environmental Engineering CTE program. He has strengthened TGS in so many ways, earning us the recognition of being the top charter high school in Rhode Island ( Niche ratings).
We will miss his intelligence, compassion, dedication, and vision as he goes on to join the Rhode Island Education Collective. We know he remains dedicated to the success of The Greene School and expect he will come by occasionally.
The Board of Directors has assembled a search committee for our next leader and will have an announcement later this month.
Better World Day

Thanks to Khadijah Hilmy (class of 2025) for orchestrating a meaningful Better World Day at TGS

Better World Day is an annual, national event showcasing student learning that contributes to a better world.
Students work in partnership with each other and their local communities on this day to engage in and celebrate meaningful student work that positively impacts the world around them.
Students present learning projects and engage in acts of service that demonstrate the power of EL Education’s vision for public school: a place where children become great scholars and active citizens with the capacity to make a positive impact.
