Hampshire Country School is a small, friendly boarding school for 20 to 25 boys, most of middle-school age.
It is especially suitable for boys of very high intellectual ability who have had difficulty functioning in large, socially complex schools, including boys with ADHD, NVLD, and Asperger's.
Traditional elementary and secondary courses are taught in very small classes. Recreation-level sports and activities are designed for fun and learning.
The rustic 1700 acre campus includes forests, lakes, streams, and a small farm.
