The joy of learning and power of community

From a founding group of seven families in the High Meadows of the Shawangunk Ridge in 1984, we have grown into a diverse community of 150 students, 35 faculty members, and over 300 parents from Ulster, Dutchess, and Orange Counties. Our history and philosophy are our steadfast guideposts in navigating new developments in curriculum, decision-making, and communication.
