A co-educational private school for Preschool–Grade Eight

Ropes Challenge Course

At Far Hills learning isn't confined to classrooms


We use our 54 acres of woodlands, a pond, four Learning Gardens, athletic fields, tennis courts, and age-appropriate play areas to extend learning out-of-doors. This outdoor classroom includes our Ropes Challenge Course.

The Ropes Challenge Course is a unique, fully supervised program that encourages sensible risk-taking–an important preparation for life’s challenges. Students in Grades 3–8 learn teamwork and perseverance as they experience both low and high elements.





Beyond Classroom Learning

The Ropes Challenge Course develops confidence, resilience, and teamwork as students work together through the low and high elements. The Course is "challenge by choice" in an environment that is encouraging and supportive. It's a favorite Far Hills activity!
