Greenstone is a capstone High School project where students present their world-shaping ideas in a TED-style talk
Greenstone is Green School’s high school capstone experience. It gives students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of skills and offers an extended period of focus on individual interests within an academic framework. It is designed and implemented entirely by students, based on their passions and interests.
Greenstone intentionally encourages students to adventure into a deep metacognitive space to embark on a journey that allows them to reflect on their place and position in the world. By exploring a project or purpose that leads to illuminating discoveries, students find self worth, validation as critical thinkers and develop lasting connections to passions, causes, partners, and potentially career pathways.
Ultimately the Greenstone embodies, “the journey is the destination”. The reflective storytelling that takes place is mentored, supported, and shared with our local and global community. The Greenstone culminates in a 13-minute presentation, in the spirit of a TED talk. These presentations are a rite of passage for all Green School graduates, bridging the Green School experience and each student’s next steps in life.
