Mission: The Orchard School was founded in 1990, through the vision of three women, and is supported by the ongoing efforts of its families and the community. Situated in the New Hampshire countryside at the edge of an organic farm and apple orchard, The Orchard School provides access to acres of woods, fields and orchard for exploration. The School building was shaped by the efforts of the community that came together and gave of their time and energy to build it. A unique feature of The Orchard School is that it is cooperatively directed and governed.

I have spent over ten years working in the field of early childhood education and no other school stands out in such an exceptional was as The Orchard School. The children and their families are supported here by a strong, dynamic and caring community that is committed to real people in real time. Three and four year olds develop a strong sense of belonging, ownership, responsibility and respect of self and others. Older children in the summer camp programs are provided with opportunities to expand their communities and sense of respect into other cultures and ways of learning. I cannot speak highly enough of the work this educational community does!

My involvement with the Orchard School has been both professional and as a friend. It is a unique, important and quite wonderful school. There is appreciation, support, and skilled professional instruction available for each child. The curriculm is developmentally appropriate, fun, environmentally conscious, family supportive and successful.
