Why Far Hills? Because who teaches your child matters. Watch the video and see how our teachers inspire students to create, question, problem-solve, and love learning. We teach students how to think, not what to think.

Would your child thrive in a school that specializes in teaching Primary and Middle School-aged children? Where instructional differentiation is based on a student's level of understanding and how each child learns best?

There's no better way to determine if Far Hills is the school for your child than to see our classrooms in action. Don’t be surprised when a student offers his or her hand and welcomes you to our school. This is a genuine mark of our truly unique community, and we invite you to experience it for yourself.
