The Field School

The Field School has uniquely small class sizes, with a median of 11 students and a student-teacher ratio of five to one. Our teachers truly know our students, and the strong relationships they build in classrooms, in art studios, and on the athletic field spark authentic learning and make it possible for students to take risks and step outside of their comfort zone.

Classrooms are about dialogue, inquiry, and critical thinking, and Field students engage in deeply serious work throughout their day. We accept a broad range of students and honor the way they learn every day through creative lessons that engage them in learning and not just memorizing information. At Field, students focus not on learning for a test, but on learning how to learn—and they take this skill with them to college and beyond.

All Field students participate in academics, athletics, and studio art classes and come to see themselves not just as well-rounded young adults, but also as thinkers, athletes, and artists.
