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.

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