A Breath of Fresh Air

The rooftop terrace is an ideal way to bring a bit of the outdoors into the school while
optimizing our square footage.

Our new rooftop terrace reflects Greenwood’s commitment to the outdoors while creating an urban oasis for our community.

At lunchtime on the first truly hot day of spring, the terrace is filled with students enjoying the May sunshine. Most are eating lunch, while some are chatting quietly; later in the day, students on spares will head up to the fourth floor to study or read.

The rooftop terrace is an ideal way to bring a bit of the outdoors into the school while optimizing our square footage. Our LEED Gold certified expansion also includes a green roof, which covers 30% of our roof space.




Like all of the spaces in our new building, the rooftop terrace was designed with flexibility in mind. A variety of seating choices, including benches, picnic tables and cafe tables, give students options to match up with their use of the space. A sliding door connecting the terrace to our rooftop classroom turns the room into an indoor/outdoor space for science and Food and Culture classes. Teachers from other subjects have also used the ample seating on the patio to hold class outdoors.
