Blue Mountain School

Blue Mountain School is a place where children are given freedom and encouraged to take responsibility for their own education - and they do.
They play, learn, and grow on their own, in small groups, as well as in democratically structured group meetings.
Every child of every age has a vote and understands his/her place in this family-like, and yes, fun environment.
Blue Mountain School is a place where students are free.
Natural curiosity, democracy and freedom with responsibility are the foundation the school is built upon.
Our students develop into well-adjusted, self-motivated adults who are equipped to participate as citizens of a democratic society.
