t High Meadows School, we believe that learning is about engagement and connection, not reciting and repeating. Our faculty members continually inspire students to ask the next question, explore what matters to them, and become respectful self-advocates. Through meaningful experience, dialogue and inquiry, students become reflective and motivated individuals prepared for long-term academic success and leadership as global citizens.

On our campus, it is common to see students outdoors and in classrooms observing, measuring, discussing, and hypothesizing. Academic study at High Meadows is hands-on and interactive, creating critical thinkers for whom learning is a natural part of their every day, at school and elsewhere. Learning through experience takes many shapes within our curriculum.

You may find High Meadows students:
Participating in an outdoor book talk with their class
Writing a personal narrative while enjoying a cool fall day
Working with multi-age buddies around campus

Our 42 acres of woods, meadows, and gardens provide the perfect outdoor classroom for daily learning and investigation. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we follow principles that develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are motivated to succeed. We also use a progressive approach to education that encourages students to collaborate, make discoveries, and apply what they learn to the world beyond school.

“We wanted our son’s education to be about authentic learning — not preparing for tests. High Meadows has delivered on providing and experience that is rich academically, but not high pressure for our child.”
High Meadows Parent

Our Unique Approach

Built on more than a century of research about how children learn, progressive education is a vigorous and engaging approach. It invites students to think deeply about issues and ideas that matter, and builds enduring skills and values for an ever-changing world.

In a progressive classroom, students learn to be:

Clear communicators

Collaborative problem solvers

Critical thinkers

Compassionate leaders

Discerning researchers

Creative artists

Responsible citizens

While students master foundational academic building blocks across core subjects, they build a deeper understanding of the significance, interconnectedness, and relevance of their learning. As renowned educator Alfie Kohn states, students in a progressive classroom learn basic facts and skills within a real-world context and for a specific purpose. That’s why student experiences are organized around authentic problems, projects, and questions that incorporate multiple subject areas.
