Green Vale’s Spirit & Community

Nearly a century ago, The Green Vale School was created by parents who believed in providing a quality education that would stand the test of time, hence the School's motto Optima Durant: “The Best Endures”.

Spirit & Community

Green Vale retains the driving spirit of its founders. While embracing the future and this ever-changing world, the School preserves myriad traditions that have drawn students together in a shared sense of camaraderie throughout the years.

From iconic building exteriors to the thrilling “Captains’ Race” that marks the end of Blue-Gold Field Day, a Green Vale education is replete with reminders of the generations that have preceded ours. While allowing for a sense of School pride, these traditions also serve an important function of FUN.
