A leader in a curriculum that teaches social and environmental justice issues, we are well known for a hands-on curriculum that promotes deep and intuitive learning. A solid and enduring core philosophy - a rich academic and arts program, close ties between families and school, and a strong sense of community - are the hallmarks of a Berkwood Hedge School education.  We believe that when we help children and young adolescents grow into their unique selves without growing up too quickly, they develop clarity and conviction for the future, yet still enjoy being children today.
