We’re here to help

There are many ways to get to know more about Darrow School and what makes us different, including the principles of active learning, hands-on education, environmental leadership, and a compassionate community.

We encourage you to have as many conversations as possible about Darrow. Listen to friends, parents, alumni, and anyone with direct experience in what we do and the type of school we are.

But make sure you talk with us, too. 

Talk to our faculty about why they’re dedicated to Darrow. Ask our students what makes the campus feel like home. Speak with our staff and our Head of School and reach your own conclusions. [After all, intellectual independence is what we advocate, and what we teach.]

Admissions is a great place to begin your own discovery of Darrow, and we are always ready to talk and connect you to anyone here for direct answers to your questions.


"The existence of freedom and the unique Darrow atmosphere have encouraged [our daughter] to learn who she is, realize her capabilities, and let her do more than she thought she could and would do."

What creativity means at Darrow

It means connecting imagination to action. It means learning the technical aspects of creative expression. And it means taking risks and taking responsibility. Darrow School’s modern, dedicated facilities for visual and performing arts enable students to develop their creative potential in many disciplines. Traditional areas of study are taught through an active curriculum that emphasizes experimentation, discussion, project development, and interaction with the environment.
