The Face of
Green Acres School Athletics Coaches
SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION
At least 80 percent of middle schoolers at Green Acres
participate regularly in two sports during their time at
the school, on teams that include soccer, cross-country,
basketball, softball, swimming, and track and field.
Sports are open to all in grades five through eight. “Our
no-cut policy gives kids an introduction to both teamwork
and the true meaning of sportsmanship,” says Athletic
Director Derek Edwards. “We want them all to step onto
the field and court wanting to make the players around
them better.” Many student-athletes go on to play sports
in high school and college—and are routinely recognized
by their peers and coaches as leaders on and off the field.
Located in North Bethesda for students from age three
through grade eight, Green Acres has been a national leader
in progressive education since 1934.
