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.
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 Farm – For 12-15 Year Olds
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 – Preparation for University and Adult Life
The high school provides 15-18 year old 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.
