Welcome to The Bellwether School!

The Bellwether School is an independent day school located in Williston, Vermont. Our mission is to inquire about and pursue holistic education by providing an emergent, community based learning experience for local students while partnering with educators around the world to advance the school reform movement. 

Our school embraces progressive education models including those developed by Ron Miller, Ralph W. Emerson, John Miller, Maria Montessori, John Dewey, and the ideas from Reggio Emilia schools.

We currently serve students in grades prek - 6 through our four multi-age classrooms. Our Lead Teachers cultivate a learning community where students are accepted as their true self, are comfortable to explore freely, and are confident to challenge themselves to try new things. By flexibly designing the curriculum to meet their needs and interests, students feel ownership for their educational journey.

Please drop us a line to learn more about our school or to share your passion for education with us. We look forward to connecting with you.
