Special Programs/Features Our outdoor education program reflects both our dedication to sustainability and our inherent belief that children thrive when given opportunities to experience the natural world. Every child spends time each day outside on our 8-acre, wooded campus and participates in our extensive gardening program. Field trips include camping trips as well as day trips ranging from a day at sea on a research vessel to a hike in a local bird sanctuary. Children ages 8 and up participate in our school chorus and each class has developmentally appropriate performance opportunities.

Touchstone Community School is an independent, progressive school providing an outstanding preschool through middle school (8th grade) experience. Weaving together the intellectual, social, emotional, physical, ethical, and creative aspects of a child's growth and development, we educate the whole child within a community of eager, engaged learners. Our arts program integrates music, movement, fine arts, drama, and dance within our curriculum; Spanish is taught at every level by a native speaker; and our commitment to sustainability extends to an outdoor education program and beyond.

How Kids Learn Resilience If we want students to act in ways that will maximize their future opportunities—to persevere through challenges, to delay gratification, to control their impulses—we need to consider what might motivate them to take those difficult steps. ...research suggests [is] that students will be more likely to display these positive academic habits when they are in an environment where they feel a sense of belonging, independence, and growth—or, [to use Deci and Ryan’s language], where they experience relatedness, autonomy, and competence.
