Mountain Shadows School

  • Mountain Shadows is a progressive, vertically grouped, integrated day school located on a farm in southern New Hampshire in the shadow of Grand Monadnock, committed to the individuality of the child as a learner and as a person.
  • We are also committed to maintaining a community which recognizes that childhood is a time of climbing mountains in which the process of the ascensions, the play and the tumbles, the curiosities and the dreams, the studying and the resourcefulness bring joy and delight to the summits.
