Maple Dene Elementary School

Tel: (978)433-5695
Grades: K-6 | 25 students
  • Maple Dene is a school of the 21st century, built upon values and practices found in the traditional country school: where older and younger children work and play together in a spirit of cooperation, and where caring is at the heart of everything we do.
  • At Maple Dene and The Moppet School, our mission is to help each child become personally and socially responsible, and independent in behavior and thinking; Provide opportunities and challenges that promote overall development, which leads to resourcefulness and the ability to solve problems; and Inspire a lifelong passion and enjoyment for learning.
  • Maple Dene uses a hands-on approach to learning.
  • Whether three or twelve years old, children are given time to explore the curiosities of life.
  • Through the industrious interactions of work and play, they are drawn to their interests.
  • Experimenting through trial and error, they search for answers.
  • Encouraged to imagine possibilities, and to create from what has been inspired, they discover.
  • This journey is adventurous and richly rewarding.
  • Children come full circle to develop a deep, genuine love for learning, and ultimately, become independent and resourceful.
  • Maple Dene is a six-acre parcel of land that consists of a two-acre playground, sports field and meadow, along with four acres of wooded hills, wetlands, and a brook.
  • Both the developed aspects of the land and its natural qualities are used as a learning environment or outdoor classroom to enrich the curriculum with outdoor activities and adventures.
