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.
Here’s what others had to say about us...
“My son has thrived at the High Meadow School for the past six years. There is such a balance between academic teaching and experiential learning that he has matured into an inspired communicator and responsible community member. We are confident that High Meadow has prepared him well for his next educational steps.”Paul R.
“We’ve been a High Meadow family since our daughter started in Pre-K. Both our children have thrived in the school’s nurturing and supportive environment. High Meadow has helped them learn the importance of empathy, social awareness and respect.”Terry B.
“My family has been so lucky to be a part of High Meadow School. It is both very nurturing yet academically enriching and has far exceeded our expectations. Our son is in the 2nd Grade and has made wonderful and hopefully lifelong friendships at High Meadow.”Jessica A.
We chose High Meadow School for our children because it meets our holistic educational needs. We trust that each teacher is giving our children their highest level of competency and attention. The community and active parent body are highly involved, supporting the school’s educational aims in very inclusive and creative ways.Jenna S.
