About Green Hedges School
Learn about Green Hedges School and what makes us such a warm and nurturing environment for your child.
Welcome to Green Hedges School, an independent coeducational day school for students, Montessori Preschool (ages 2, 3, and 4) & Kindergarten through Grade 8. The moment you step on to our 5-acre campus nestled in the Historic Windover Heights residential neighborhood of Vienna, Virginia, you will feel the energy and warmth found in a diverse community of children and adults.
For over 75 years, Green Hedges School has honored and nurtured the mission of our founders, Frances and Kenton Kilmer, to provide a challenging academic core while being steeped in world languages, the arts, and athletics, while supporting the healthy intellectual, social, and emotional growth of our students. The result is a dynamic school environment in which preschool, elementary, and middle school children thrive.
Students at Green Hedges get the care and the guidance they need to thrive as learners. Our outstanding faculty designs curricular experiences that promote our Core Values: Achieve Distinction, Explore Opportunities, Inspire Character, and Become Yourself. The faculty know, value, and support students with a rich academic program that sparks curiosity and joy in intellectual discovery. The vast majority of graduates matriculate to their top-choice high school, prepared to thoughtfully and confidently meet new challenges and succeed.
I am proud to be part of this remarkable community. I invite you to visit our campus to learn first-hand how we inspire young people of talent and promise to develop clear values, a desire for wisdom, and an appreciation for all endeavors which broaden the mind and enlighten the spirit.
