Red Fox Community School


Red Fox Community School is a K-5 independent progressive elementary school that emphasizes outdoor education, community and life skills. Our goal is to educate independent thinkers, creative problem solvers and engaged, respectful community members.

At Red Fox Community School, we are first and foremost a community of children, families, and educators.  We are committed to developing relationships in which all are welcome and encouraged to share their voice and feel respected as integral members of the community.

At Red Fox Community School, education is an opportunity for bringing meaningful change to the world around us.  Through shared authentic experiences, emphasis on the learning process, and the building of meaningful connections with the outside world, we envision our students to be empowered stewards of intellectual freedom, community mindedness, and of the natural world around them.

Our school is a place where children learn by doing, are encouraged to ask questions and try out big ideas, and wholeheartedly support one another in their efforts.

We are located in Manchester Center, Vermont on Pig Pen Road off Route 30.  Visit our website for a curriculum overview, take a look at our class blog, and learn more about our mission and values.
