The Birch School
The Birch School is a micro-school, serving students in grades 2-12. We are a lively mixed-age learning community. Our focus is a holistic approach to learning, supporting child-led exploration, interests and activities. We help students become self-directed learners and offer the resources to support and guide them. The core of the program is our individualized curriculum which combines curated learning tools and authentic participation in community life. We are currently offering full or part time and in-person, virtual, or hybrid educational plans for elementary, middle and high school students. We offer elective classes and support for homeschool families. We now offer a part-time Forest School for Elementary-aged students.
High Meadow School
High Meadow School is grounded in the progressive education movement of the late 19th century, which emphasizes educating the whole child – their physical, emotional, and intellectual selves. As a laboratory for collaborative, inquiry-based learning, we believe in the power of relationships. Together, we practice the skills of participation in a democratic community, including listening, self-expression, problem solving, and community care. With an emphasis on nature and the arts, our seven-acre campus includes three school buildings, a performing arts and athletic center, a music building, gazebo, three playgrounds, and a nature trail.
