Welcome to The Grove School, a free public charter Montessori learning community for 12-18 year olds where teachers support adolescents in building their academic and social skills to be capable, productive, and fulfilled adults who contribute to their community. Teachers create dynamic learning environments that are hands-on, collaborative, and joyful that give students the freedom to follow their interests to develop strong skills in academics, leadership, self-discipline, responsibility, independence, and initiative.
Grove School learning experiences challenge students to grow and develop their intellectual, practical, and social skills. At Grove, students experience a supportive social community where they are respected by adults and can be themselves as they develop their identity. With Grove’s progressive college and life preparation approach, students are expected to be responsible, self-disciplined, and honest. All of these elements described above work together to create an inclusive and diverse peace community, where students often remark they feel valued and safe, and enjoy coming to school.
Other key attributes include:
- One of around twenty Montessori middle and high schools in the United States
- A working farm on 9 acres of land
- Key Experiences that create a rich, supportive, and deep learning experiences
- Mentoring program
I invite you to discover all that makes Grove an exceptional option for education.
