North Country School

Founded in 1938, North Country School sits among mountain peaks in the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, just outside Lake Placid, NY. Our 200-acre campus features a working farm, extensive gardens, and mountain wilderness that provide hands-on opportunities for learning and growth. Here children in grades 4-9 benefit from a literal and metaphorical breath of fresh mountain air; our students thrive in a humanely paced program that features equal parts academics, arts, work, and play. The guidance of talented, committed adults and a strong, diverse community instill in students values of simple living and environmental responsibility. With a unique mix of inspiring people, place, and programs, North Country School helps students to flourish.

This week has been all about coming together, getting to know one another, and giving our students a chance to be children. Do you know how to make grass scream?

Students toured our gardens and greenhouses, and learned about how the produce we all help plant, nurture, and gather makes its way to our plates.

Life has been less than normal for the last year-and-a-half, and we are giving our returning students time to explore, play, and be children. As they get to know each other, and the campus, there is a sense of community building that will form the foundation of everything we do this semester.

Our students are finally back! Today, everyone learned about campus by going on a fun scavenger hunt, which took them to the barn, the ski hill, and everywhere in between.

North Country School was featured in a story that appeared in Lake Placid News called "North Country School sees international challenges, opportunities."

In the article, Executive Director Todd Ormiston said: “We believe that we’re uniquely positioned with, No. 1, our in-person academic program through the pandemic and, No. 2, smaller classes and more personal attention, and kids right now need that."
