Fundamental to Happy Hollow School's philosophy is the belief that early childhood years represent the most vital period in a child's educative process and therefore every activity during this time is a unique opportunity to learn.
Given this extraordinary opportunity to set the tone for a child's entire life, the School creates a warm, nurturing and personal environment with structure and content that gently challenges students to explore the world and their own blossoming potential.
By design, and for more than 50 years, Happy Hollow is a small school with a high teacher to student ratio that allows each student to feel appreciated, understood and loved.
Most of all, students of Happy Hollow School are partners with faculty, parents and community in which we all work together building the foundation for a life and love of learning.
