Darrow School is a coeducational boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 and PG. Darrow is committed to active, project-based learning. Our curriculum combines traditional subject areas with highly creative electives, enabling students to cultivate their own enthusiasms and fascinations. It’s about balance, but rigorous balance. Too often, schools mistakenly equate “rigor” with more work. These pressure cooker environments emphasize more AP classes, more SAT prep, more extracurriculars. At Darrow, we believe that students must explore their own passions, learn to ask essential questions, construct meaning, test ideas, and contribute their discoveries to the whole community. Our students embrace diversity in all its forms. They master effective communication with peers and teachers whose backgrounds may be quite different than their own. This is rigor at its most effective: student-centered, with real-world applications, and driven less by rote memorization and more by the acquisition of essential skills. Darrow alumni are ready for anything, not only because they’ve received a superior liberal arts education, but because they know how to work hard, push boundaries, accept criticism, question assumptions, and solve problems. They have learned how to think, and how to express that thinking purposefully.. Visit www.darrowschool.org to learn more and find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, WeChat, and SnapChat.
