A Year of Polarities
At High Mowing, ninth grade students observe and experience the world directly. In a year when feelings can be all consuming, freshmen are gently and intentionally directed towards objectivity. Students are encouraged to practice close, accurate observation and clear recollection in various contexts. This innovative approach, which addresses the 14-year-old’s need to reconcile the world’s complexities while making sense of their own feelings takes place within a carefully constructed year-long series of required intensive multidisciplinary block classes, and are augmented by skill-building tracks, required studio art, and farm and forest courses and electives.
