A country farm school for ALL children, including learners with attention difficulties and ADHD.
Groton Farm School is a country day school located on a 20-acre working farm. A great deal of our teaching is outside, in nature, among our orchard and farm animals. We are located at Luina Greine Farm and welcome ALL children from the ages of 5-9 years old, including children with attention difficulties and ADHD. We are a child-centered educational community that encourages adventure, exploration, and love of learning from September through June!
Nature Based Curriculum Rooted in Wonder
At Groton Farm School, we believe the natural world around us is the perfect classroom to inspire wonder, independent learning, and critical thinking. We recognize that children learn and grow in response to where they learn. Our school provides a unique opportunity to utilize our diverse landscape on 20 acres, as our primary resource for learning. Students are invited to explore our pastures, meadows, forest, apple orchard, and barnyard full of animals every day.
Find out what sets us apart! We invite you to get to know our talented, accomplished, and well-educated staff of professionals.
