A Message from Dr. Winsome Gregory
“Enter our doors and embrace the future” is not just a motto at Greenburgh Eleven UFSD; it’s a guiding principle that shapes every aspect of our district.
Nestled in the serene grounds of Children’s Village, a venerable residential treatment center located 20 miles north of NYC in Dobbs Ferry, Greenburgh Eleven UFSD is a place where we build relationships one student at a time. We understand that every student who walks through our doors is unique, facing their own emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges. It’s our mission to help each of them not only overcome these challenges but also prepare them for a future filled with opportunities.
At Greenburgh Eleven, we are committed to academic excellence and innovation. Our focus for the year ahead includes intensified literacy support and a heightened emphasis on STEM education. We believe in the power of hands-on learning opportunities, fostering curiosity and inspiring a love of learning. Our technology-enriched classrooms and diagnostic assessments enhance our ability to tailor our educational approach to each student’s individual learning style, providing them with the tools they need to thrive.
However, education is about more than just academics. It’s about holistic child development, and that’s at the core of our program. We recognize that a student’s emotional and mental well-being is just as important as their academic achievements. That is why we have a dedicated team of clinicians and therapists who work alongside our students, offering the support and guidance they need to grow and flourish.
Our commitment to the well-being of our students extends to our approach to discipline. We believe in Restorative Justice, a philosophy that promotes healthy relationships and community cohesion. This aligns perfectly with our participation in the PBIS behavior management program, which prepares our students not only for academic success but also for post-secondary education and successful careers. We want to instill in them the values of respect, responsibility, and resilience.
At Greenburgh Eleven, we understand that it takes a village to nurture a child’s growth, and that’s why our staff and our Children’s Village (community) partners stand together with unwavering commitment. We are all here to ensure the holistic success of every student. When you enter our doors, you’re not just stepping into a school; you’re embracing the future with open arms, knowing that you have a dedicated team behind you, ready to help you reach your full potential.

A Message from Dr. Rolon
Greenburgh Eleven UFDS is a day and residential all male public school with a student-teacher ratio of 8:1:1. Each class has a teacher and teacher associate. The School provides a comprehensive educational program in accordance with the Regulations of the New York State Education Department. Instruction is based on New York State Standards and on students’ Individual Education Plans (IEP). The school year is extended to include a thirty-day summer program for all students. Students are prepared to become critical thinkers as well as self-confident, respectful, responsible, independent learners and citizens.
A specially trained and certified instructional staff employs a multitude of strategies and materials to teach students. Special subjects, such as art, music, physical education, health, Spanish and technology are part of the program. This program allows teachers to meet the students’ academic, social and emotional needs. Families are an integral part of the school. Parents are invited to visit the school whenever they wish to meet with teachers, administrators and to observe their children in class.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is our behavior management program that establishes a common language in the school of Respect, Responsibility and Safety. The students, all of whom are experiencing academic and social/emotional deficits, are rewarded for displaying positive character traits throughout the school day.
Students are provided with a quality education where diversity, creativity, mutual respect and self-esteem are emphasized and cultivated. A collaborative partnership exists among students, educators, parents, and the community. Successes are measured not only by students’ test scores but by who they become and the real life experience they gain at Greenburgh Eleven.
