Students skipped through a natural playground last week, collecting leaves, seedpods, rocks and twigs for a nature collage.
Afterward, they sat on the grass in a circle discussing their finds while their teachers looked on, gently guiding their conversation and asking occasional questions.
Welcome to the Mountain River School, where Stowe’s recreation trails, streams and mountains are viewed as classrooms and a holistic curriculum nurtures students’ social and emotional development as well as their intellectual growth.
