Independent and Progressive
Private School in the Hudson Valley
Age 2 through 8th Grade

Since 1984, High Meadow School has nurtured children's love of learning by engaging their intrinsic curiosity in nature, one another, play, and creative expression. We empower each child to be an independent thinker with a personal voice by providing opportunities to authentically and compassionately participate as a member of a diverse, democratic school community. 

Our alternative, progressive curriculum starts in our nursery school program
and continues through middle school.
