Darrow School: 75 Years of Hands-on, Active Learning

Darrow School, an independent, co-ed, boarding and day school for grades 9-12 in New Lebanon, NY, offers a comprehensive college-preparatory curriculum that emphasizes strong critical thinking and writing skills in all subject areas. Students learn within an atmosphere that supports intellectual curiosity, individual creativity, and the power of hands-on learning. The School has been recognized as a pioneer in the field of "hands-on learning," and Darrow teachers use real-world topics and a dynamic approach to capture the imagination and make the subject matter come alive.

Darrow's small classes, averaging nine students, afford everyone the chance to participate, and help forge strong bonds between students and teachers. The beautiful 365-acre mountainside campus is located on the site of the historic Mt. Lebanon Shaker Village, on the Massachusetts-New York border, and Darrow continues to embrace the Shaker legacy of sustainability and stewardship. The academic program's focus on environmental, social, and economic resources encourages students to discover the value of finding balance within one's self, the community, and global society. In 2005, the National Association of Independent Schools recognized the School with a Leading Edge Honoree Award for curriculum innovation.

Through participation in a rigorous academic curriculum, athletics, the arts, student leadership, and community service, students become not just college-bound individuals, but also independent learners, conscious decision makers, and responsible citizens of both their communities and the world.
