High Meadow School offers many enrichment opportunities for both HMS students and the community at large. We offer a rich selection of programming through our On the Meadow course list which include after-school, before-school, extended vacation, parent/child, and summer camp opportunities. We also offer private music and academic tutoring.
Athletics are focused on building technical skills, endurance, and flexibility, and encouraging collaboration and leadership within the experience of team sports. Our program cultivates ethics such as determing your personal best, supporting teammates, and a mindset in which losses are opportunities to improve. We offer three seasons of sports: volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter, and soccer in the spring.
After School Programs
Our After-School Clubs offer opportunities for students to pursue their interests and passions, with a diverse range of choices including: art, gymnastics, french, dance, drama, music ensembles, filmmaking, and more. Check out our fall 2017 programming and registration options.

Parent Child Programs
Come join us on Thursdays at 9:30 as we explore what nature has to offer in the Winter season! The Inchworm Program is an opportunity for parents (or other caregivers) and 2-4 year olds to learn and play side by side on the High Meadow Campus. Discover the magic of the winter and making crafts from natural materials. Enjoy circle games, stories, songs, and healthy snacks to celebrate the season.
Music Together offers a fun & engaging 45-minute class for children infant through age 4 and their parents or caregivers, Mondays at 10:00 in the dance studio. Plan to be silly while we build fundamental tonal and rhythmic skills by singing many age-appropriate songs especially arranged for a young child’s voice. Class involves movement, singing, dancing and playing and exploring of many percussive instruments and props: shakers, bells, scarves, balls, drums and more. The structure of our class flows well for young children and is not too physically taxing for the adults.
