Let this school know you found them on Boston magazine’s Find It Boston.

This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


The Putney School is an independent day and boarding high school on a working dairy farm in Putney, VT. It was founded in 1935, and for more than 85 years has been at the forefront of the progressive school movement, believing people learn best by doing. Through experiential and project-based learning, a unique work program, robust arts offerings, and plentiful clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities, students are encouraged to think for themselves, invent, design, experiment, compose, write, build, and chase down new ideas. With a mission to create active, critical thinkers and members
of a democratic society, Putney’s goal is not to merely convey information but to engage students in the learning process, so they become makers of their own education.
