All independent college preparatory schools should offer an outstanding core experience: a first-rate academic program, distinctive opportunities in the arts, and excellent athletics.

Eagle Hill School

P.O. Box 116
Hardwick, Massachusetts, USA Show Phone Number   

Over the last forty years Eagle Hill School has steadfastly challenged and redefined the conventional wisdom regarding the education of students with learning (dis)abilities. Today, the genius of the Eagle Hill philosophy remains its simplicity. As you have probably inferred from my use of parentheses around the prefix “dis,” our philosophy is grounded in the belief that our students are not disabled at all. To understand the difficulties that they have faced in other academic settings requires a careful look at the unfortunate and limiting ways in which most schools view their students. At Eagle Hill School, we understand that...
