Campus

About our campus


Darrow occupies the site of the original Mount Lebanon Shaker Village, which has been designated a National Historic Landmark. 

On our 365-acre campus, adjoining the Pittsfield State Forest, there are 26 buildings (most are original Shaker structures), several playing fields, tennis courts, extensive hiking and cross-country ski trails, ponds, pastures, orchards, marshlands, and an expansive forest. It’s the quintessence of the beauty of the Berkshires.

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.
