Community ratings & reviews

  • (2 years ago)

    Dedicated staff that take the time to cater work to special needs (both special ed and gifted). Project-based rigorous hands-on real world academics. Outward Bound type wilderness trips.

  • (4 years ago)

    Small middle school where the teachers know each student. Small classes. Focus on project based learning and community. Wilderness trips and outdoor experiences. After some ups and downs the school is settling after doubling in size. Some great new staff. Could use more extra-curricular activities and a ski program.
