Sliding-Scale Private Middle School to Open in Fort Greene Near Navy Yard


Greene Hill School, a private elementary school a block south of the Navy Yard, tells us they’re expanding to include a middle school. The school, which has a sliding tuition scale based on income, currently serves 100 children in pre-K through fifth grade. They just started accepting applications for their first sixth grade class, to start in fall 2014. By 2016, they will have a comprehensive pre-K through eighth grade program. Greene Hill occupies a 19th-century Catholic school building at 39 Adelphi Street, which they rent from the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn. However, the school is independent and not affiliated with a religious group. For more information, check out their admissions page and the brochure (PDF) for the new middle school. GMAP
