Engage and Learn!
Math, science, reading and writing – these are the staples of most academic programs. In this respect, Crotched Mountain School is like most other schools. It’s how we teach and make these subjects accessible to all students that makes us different. When biology is on the syllabus, students can learn by raising chickens and caring for farm animals. Vocational opportunities in our skills center can teach reading, math and working cooperatively with others. Learning about history becomes engaging when students reenact the Pony Express with therapy horses. Our students can tap trees for sap and make syrup, monitor the campus weather station, design web pages, dance, hike, act and also sit at a desk to complete their projects. In short, they engage and learn!
