Maine Farm School

"What about High School" gets asked around here quite a bit... This new proposal for a public experiential school emphasizing place-based education piqued my curiousity... what do people know about it?  Thoughts?

"What about high school?" is the question, isn't it? You'll be surprised at how the answer you think you know, even at the beginning of 8th grade, will change as your kids start to firmly become who they are going to be. What seems so right at one moment will suddenly feel all wrong. I've found that a lot of high schools that look appealing would be perfect for me, but not at all for Graham. There's a much clearer separation now: it's so much more about who he is than about who we want him to be.
