At High Meadow, we believe you shouldn’t have to choose between social-emotional development and academic growth.
High Meadow teachers prioritize student well-being as a means to support authentic engagement with academic work. In collaboration with each other and every child, teachers foster classroom communities where every child is excited to learn.
Our teachers are guides and fellow researchers in their classes, designing student-centered plans and projects that honor their young people’s innate curiosity and creativity.
Small class sizes, along with a campus-wide commitment to the Positive Discipline method of classroom management, support teachers in maintaining a school culture of respect and belonging. 
Teachers at all grade levels engage in significant professional development activities, and have access to daily support from administrators and support staff.
