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.

Yesterday, a series of rainstorms gave way to twin rainbows, which decorated the sky above Pitchoff and Cascade mountains.

Before summer started, our faculty and staff came together to plant flowers in our flower garden. Those beautiful blooms will greet everyone as they return at the summer's end.

As we celebrate freedom on #Juneteenth, we know there's still change to be made. Today we honor our friends and partners who speak about nature as a human right. Dr. Thomas R. Easley, Lisa Munoz, and Mirna Valerio - The Mirnavator, and the students and teachers who participated in #accesswildplaces reminded us that nature for all is a goal we must continue working toward. We thank you.

It was the only dreary day of the week for the Access Wild Places crew, but they weren’t about to let a little rain stop them from reaching Balanced Rocks. Before the hike began, the group convened at the campus yurt, where they were introduced to special guest Mirna Valerio - The Mirnavator. Mirna shared her thoughts on being aware of the surrounding nature, and encouraged the hikers to reach their destination.

Back on campus, everyone did some improv with theater teacher Courtney before heading back to Rock-E to meet visitors from The Wild Center and Adirondack Mountain Club. Mirna gave a wonderful talk, and everyone settled in for a well-earned sleep.
