Hampshire Country School
- Hampshire Country School is a small, friendly boarding school for about 20 boys of elementary and middle-school age.
- It is a place of wholesome laughter and play, where boys who may have been isolated and lonely elsewhere will fit, thrive, and learn the fun of life and learning.
- It is especially suitable for boys of high intellectual ability who have had serious difficulty meeting behavior expectations in large, socially complex schools, including boys with ADHD, NVLD, and Asperger's.
- Traditional elementary and secondary courses are taught in classes of about 4 students.
- Recreation-level sports and activities are designed for fun and learning.
- The rustic 1700 acre campus includes forests, lakes, streams, and a small farm.
