Birches School: A School for Curious Students


Birches School is an independent, co-educational Kindergarten through 8th Grade school offering rigorous, interdisciplinary academics within a mindful, nurturing environment. Our approach emphasizes nature-based, project-driven thematic units designed to cultivate academic and social development and to encourage students' curiosity, creativity, self-reliance, and empathy.

In January 2016, Birches entered into a mission-driven collaboration with the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust and the Rural Land Foundation. Because these organizations are committed to educating the next generation of conservationists, we are exploring paths together to achieve this goal. For further information, please read here.

Birches has been formally accepted as a Candidate for membership in AISNE (Association of Independent Schools in New England). We have been an affiliate member of AISNE since we opened; our acceptance as Candidate is an important milestone.
