CREW
All students take part in the crew program at the Greene School. Crew is designed to provide students with a daily opportunity to interact with grade-level peers and a crew leader. Crew groups are used to facilitate close relationships.

 

The Crew Program has several goals.

  1. To build community among students in order to promote a positive peer culture

  2. To provide academic advising and coaching

  3. To provide support for transitions to and from high school including post-secondary goal setting and planning

  4. To enhance communication and involvement with parents

  5. To provide a democratic structure for student governance.

 

Students are assigned to groups and paired with a crew leader. Crew meets for a total of 90 minutes per week. Crew leaders are expected to take a sincere interest in each of their Crew members and act as his/her advisor and mentor. Providing support and building relationships are the two most important aspects of this role.
