Foley Mountain Forest School

Foley Mountain Forest School offers an alternative education in which children spend most of their time outside, learning through experiential, hands-on opportunities that promote curiosity in an active and authentic learning environment. Students will receive the benefits of repeated and regular visits to a natural area, in a play and inquiry-based education setting.
