We fell in love with High Meadow the first moment we stepped on campus, and have felt more and more fortunate to have found it with every passing year. The teachers shine with a rare sense of vocation, the classrooms and campus are happy, kind, thoughtful, well ordered and alive with learning. Students in the upper school seem to navigate adolescence with unusual grace. Our kids relish their lessons and really retain what they learn. It''s a lovely and talented parent body and a true community.

I am a parent of a 6yr old/kindergartener and we have been at the school since my son was two (mommy and me program). I have been incredibly impressed with the priorities at High Meadow as well as the academics and the community at large. My son has flourished and we have created a network of like-minded friends that I now consider family. I look forward to the many years of his High Meadow education.
