    Eagle Hill School educates students identified with learning (dis)abilities by providing an intimate and encouraging community that honors the individual, values learning diversity, and cultivates international-mindedness. As members of the Eagle Hill community, we endeavor to lead lives of purpose and pledge to conduct ourselves with honesty, respect, and kindness.

    Eagle Hill School believes:

    • That every student can learn.
    • That every person who interacts with a student is a teacher.
    • That learning differently demands to teach.
    • That the foremost responsibility for pedagogical decisions lies with individual teachers.
    • All teachers should have the necessary resources for implementing the curriculum.
    • Parent partnerships are an essential component in the pursuit of academic and social development.
    • That we must encourage students to learn about learning and form their own beliefs in a search for intellectual autonomy.
    • That personal and social growth must be nurtured alongside intellectual development.
    • That the exploration of the arts and exposure to athletics and physical fitness are essential components in developing independent, curious, and critical thinkers.
    • That we should cultivate in our students a sense of moral responsibility for their thoughts and actions
    • Over the last fifty years, Eagle Hill School has steadfastly challenged and redefined conventional wisdom regarding students' education with learning (dis)abilities. Today, the genius of the Eagle Hill philosophy remains its simplicity. As you have probably inferred from my use of parentheses around the prefix "dis," our philosophy is grounded in the belief that our students are not disabled at all. To understand the difficulties that they have faced in other academic settings requires a careful look at the unfortunate and limiting ways in which most schools view their students.
    • At Eagle Hill School, we understand that our students are blessed with multiple learning abilities and that it is our responsibility as educators to identify, celebrate, and support each student in capitalizing on his or her genius. Moreover, instead of merely providing support within a traditional classroom setting, Eagle Hill School designs classes around each student's particular strengths and needs. By emphasizing individualized attention within the context of a small classroom environment, Eagle Hill provides for each student's academic, social, and personal growth.
