The Mountain School's Full Profile
The Mountain School says
At Mountain School, students come from all over the country, from public and private schools. They have one thing in common: they all want to be here. Imagine a class of 6 to 16 students around one table, becoming better writers, thinkers, and scientists. The Mountain School is a culture of collaborative thinking among students, and between students and faculty. Most teachers have been at the Mountain School for a decade or longer. Our students are guided by talented, experienced teachers who care. Most of our courses are integrated and interdisciplinary. We also strive for a smooth academic transition, ensuring that each student is fully prepared to reenter the curriculum of the home school.
The Mountain School received a Noodle Innovative School Award in 2015.
Students take five academic classes for a full semester credit. English and Environmental Science are required, and students take three of the following: math, language (French, Spanish, Chinese, Latin), U.S. History, Physics, Chemistry (spring only), Humanities and Studio Art. Every student participates in our Outdoor Program which counts as a Physical Education credit. Our classes are all offered at the Honors or AP level.
The Mountain School cultivates a diverse and interdependent community of scholars who learn to know a place and take care of it. Through collaborative learning and shared work, students emerge from their semester prepared to reach beyond the self and focus on the common good.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
