About High Meadows

Mission & Guiding Principles

Mission

The High Meadows community celebrates and perpetuates each individual’s quest for knowledge and skill, sense of wonder, and connection to the natural environment. We empower each to be a compassionate, responsible, and active global citizen.

Guiding Principles

  • Childhood is a distinct stage of life marked by a compelling drive to learn. We promote children’s engagement with the world through discovery, conversation, and play.
  • Through their actions, children seek belonging and significance; they deserve understanding and respect. 
  • Children learn and mature in different ways, at different paces. Intentional blending of developmental stages within a classroom enhances each child's growth. 
  • Children should be guided and empowered to develop intrinsic motivation, to take ownership of their learning, and to experience wonder and joy.
  • We engage with the natural environment consciously, respectfully, and purposefully. This empowers us to appreciate and inhabit the earth responsibly. 
  • We understand, respect, and appreciate differences within our community, enabling us to be compassionate, responsible members of our global society.
  • We commit to open communication and constructive dialogue. The broad-based participation and support of families is essential to fulfilling our mission.

Statement on Diversity

The High Meadows community values and supports diversity in all of its dimensions, including but not limited to each person’s unique combination of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical ability, learning style, religious beliefs, political views, perspectives, and life experiences.

By embracing diversity, we expand our understanding of others, stimulate our own learning and growth, and connect with one another and the world. Moving beyond simple tolerance builds a safe, positive, and nurturing environment that expands each individual’s enduring sense of belonging and significance.

 

So many of my son's successes stem from his self-awareness, belief in fairness, and self-confidence all qualities I can trace back to Preschool at High Meadows.
