Works Here: I work at The Darrow School and my experience has been amazing. The curriculum is top-notch, with faculty and staff that are committed to the students and each other. The school culture is warm, respectful and embracing of everyone. Students are engaged, encouraged and supported in all facets of boarding school life for a well-rounded experience that promotes healthy socio-emotional, academic and physical development.
Darrow has amazing facilities and program offerings for a small, independent boarding school. From our top-notch performing arts center for music, theater and media engineering, to the he Kurtz Innovation Center, where students explore new technologies, to The Living Machine™, the country's first ecological wastewater treatment center located in a high school, to name a few.
I consider myself lucky to be part of Darrow and encourage families to give our a school a look for themselves!

Alum: The lower and middle school were definitely good when I was there. Certain aspects of the high school are absolutely wonderful and others are not so good. Some of the teachers are stellar but you also find the few don't seem to be equipped to teach at a Waldorf school. The academics that HVS does cover are very good and provide valuable learning experiences. The school is heavily art based and while they do cover the sciences, they cover them in a completely different way from any other school I know. While this too is valuable it can make the transition from high school to a science based college major more difficult.
