STRATHAM — A school that encourages its students to have fun as they learn, while also teaching them how to practice sustainability, is transforming them into inquisitive, caring and responsible graduates who develop a deep affinity for their alma mater.

The Acorn School isn’t your typical pre-K and kindergarten. Launched in 1972, Acorn has remained steadfast in its efforts to maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio, one-on-one interaction, communication, and personal growth. The school uses its beautiful surroundings in Stratham to help forge a curriculum and philosophy aimed at stirring within its students an appreciation for the natural world.

Acorn touts an incredible, diverse curriculum, where finger painting and drawing meld seamlessly with Lego-building and sign language. From science to theater, world culture to creative arts, music to creative writing, no educational stone is left unturned.
