Juniper Hill School for Place-Based Education connects children to themselves, to

each other, and to their communities through studying both natural and human

environments. Utilizing integrated curriculum, immersion in the natural world, and

social understanding, we strive to create peaceful, creative, loving children, who

become masters of their own learning and actively help to make this world a better

place.The outdoors serves as our primary classroom and a springboard for a

curriculum that synthesizes the best of 20th century progressive education with a 21st

century place-based approach.We serve families in central and midcoast Maine who

grade school by 2018. Next year, 2013-14, we will accept ages four to nine (pre-K to
