The real meaning of rigor: More than book learning. Life learning.
At Far Hills, we hold students accountable not only for academic excellence, but also for the mastery of critical life skills that are the elements of lifelong achievement, happiness, and success. Students don’t just learn answers. They learn the courage to challenge those answers. They learn not only problem solving, but also the confidence to stand by their solutions. They don’t simply learn to play a musical composition, they develop the self-esteem to stand up and perform. This is the balance that defines Far Hills—and sets our students apart.
A Far Hills education offers a richer, deeper, more complete educational experience. Dedicated specialists design and teach our curriculum in reading, writing, languages, math, and science. A variety of active, engaging, hands-on teaching methods are combined to provide intimate, individualized, level-specific education focused on unlocking each child’s potential.
Accountability is key. Our students are not only measured by their academic performance, but also by their application of the character-defining skills that differentiate the Far Hills approach to education. We place equal emphasis on both, and accountability for both is the foundation of our community, culture, and code of honor.
The Far Hills difference can make a real difference in your child’s future. The balance of academic excellence, a nurturing environment, and a curriculum of empowering and character-defining life skills provides an advantage that your child can only get at Far Hills. Our graduates go on to attend the finest secondary schools, colleges, and universities, with a mastery of the life skills that will allow them to embrace opportunity and make the world their own. They leave Far Hills knowing how to think, not what to think. They are more than intellectually inspired, but are inspired to be passionate about their potential as achievers and leaders in anything they pursue—in academics, in the professional world, and in life.
