(Citizen Photos by Dan Tortorell) Green Fields School Opens Campaign To Raise $150,000 Within Family' By MARGARET KUEHLTHAU : Citiien Staff Writer Green Fields, a coeducational preparatory country day school, this week opened its fund-raising campaign, with a goal of $150,000. Green Fields has been praised by educators for the vitality of its growth. The school was established in 1933 at the request of a group of families from the East who were seeking sound and conservative training for then- sons. Since its founding, Green Fields has sent its students to many of the country's kading schools: Andover, Brooks, Choate, Deerfield, Exeter., Fountain Valley, St. Mark's, St. Paul's, Thatcher, Webb and others. Below is a sample of the letters received by the administration at Green Fields from edu- cators representing the above schools: . . . "Green Fields students display real intellectual curiosity and bid strongly for leadership in activities other than the academic alone. It would be difficult to think of any other school preparing students for us which has · done a better job than Green Fields." ' . . . "It is obvious that tfie young man from Green Fields has had sound training. As is always the case, this sort of performance reflects credit on a student's school as well as on himself." . . . "I have long had the very highest respect for Green Fields -- for the fine caliber of student enrolled there and for the excellent preparation g i v e n them." Eight years ago, the residen- tial department of the school was closed and Green Fields became a day school only. In 1966, the school ·became coeducational. It had expanded, to a four-year high school program the previous year. Charles E. Crary is head of Green Fields' development program, and Mrs. Louis Hirsch is chairman of the fund - raising drive. Green Fields, with Frederick M. Baltzell as headmaster, sets high standards .of scholarship, Mrs. Hirsch says. Its small classes, with a teacher-student ratio of about one to eight, provide special educational advantages. Classes begin with the fifth grade, and children may advance at their own rate of achievement. Of the money to be raised for the school, a total of $20,000 will be set aside for scholarships, ac- cording to Mrs. Hirsch. Currently, she said, about 18 per cent of the school's enrollment of 80 students is attending on some form of scholarship. Green Fields is located on part of the 80-acre Circle Double A Ranch, nine miles northwest of the business center of Tucson, just off Orange Grove Road. The campus consists of eight buildings grouped around a spacious lawn, with an athletic field, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, a rifle range and a swimming pool. Because only members of the "Green Fields family" will be contacted -- parents and grandparents of children enrolled, alumni and their families -- the school has not requested approval for the drive from the Tucson Fund Raising Review Board.
