Students at High Meadow are researchers, historians, anthropologists, and sociologists.
Teachers engage students’ innate curiosity, developing their ability to make connections across time and place and to create original meaning from diverse information.
Our student-centered program explores universal themes of human societies: Interdependence, Independence, Scarcity, Community, Conflict, Change, and Culture.
Students draw on primary and secondary sources; an inquiry approach encourages investigations of diverse perspectives and analysis of information accuracy.
Our approach guides students as they ask big questions, not only about course content, but also about what it means to be an ethically responsible individual and a member of a local and global community.
