The Grove School
The Grove School is a public Montessori community that guides adolescents in their work of self-construction, as they become engaged and respectful world citizens.
A Montessori Approach to Young Adulthood
Grove provides an intelligent and positive approach to learning by creating an effective learning environment for 12-18 year olds. (7th to 12th grade)
The social conditions of our day “fail to protect the principal energy on which the future depends: human energy, the power of the individual personality” (Maria Montessori). The Grove School seeks to address this lack with a program that promotes independence and the construction of the authentic self.
The Middle School – For 12-15 Year Olds (7th to 9th Grade)
The farm provides the optimal environment for learning about the challenges of life, the importance of individual responsibility and the need to appreciate the hard work of others. Students build a solid work ethic and find relevance for current and future academic work.
The High School – For 15-18 Year Olds (10th to 12th Grade)
The high school provides students with a place for study and work where academic rigor meets hands on learning. Students learn to set and accomplish goals while they gain knowledge and skills necessary to engage in the dialogue of cultural literacy.
