Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Field,

The Field School is in its 48th year of providing a progressive education that focuses on the whole child.  

At Field, each child is seen, known and heard.  Students are valued for being exactly who they are.  They are encouraged to challenge themselves and students are valued for who they are. 

They are challenged to go beyond what they feel is possible--with the appropriate scaffolding to ensure that they thrive. 

Teacher and student relationship is at the center of all classroom learning. 

Classroom pedagogy is best practice and research driven. 

We are creating innovators, problem solvers and creators. At Field, 
there is no box that kids must fit into-- their voice guides the work.

We believe that mistakes, trial and error are all a part of the learning process, and that  adolescence is a time to be treasured and valued, it isn’t just preparation for college and beyond. 

I hope you will join us at a virtual event soon! 

Warmly, 
Lori Strauss
Head of School
