In addition to teaching students WHAT innovation is, we teach them HOW to be innovative in their inquiry, thinking and actions.    Since we began in 1973, High Meadows teachers have emphasized an innovative, inquiry-based, integrated educational approach that fosters

Our brains have evolved to learn about the world by experimenting with it, tinkering with natural items and interacting with each other. Preschoolers naturally operate this way, dismantling

But many people wonder how our inquiry-based approach translates to content-rich subjects like science, history, and math, especially for older children. How do we know that they are getting the content they need? Visit

By Margaret Jones, Associate Head of School and Lower Years Principal When we think about the early years of a child’s formal education, we are often reminded of the 3 R’s–reading, writing and ‘rithmetic. These core academic areas are essential to children as they begin to master communicating through text and figuring with numbers, data, and space. And yet, young
