Who: Acorn School

What: Launched in 1972, the Acorn School engages children's creativity by making the process of learning as fun as possible. The school uses its surroundings to help forge a curriculum and philosophy aimed at stirring within its students an appreciation for the natural world; including recycling, composting and keeping a healthy garden. Acorn has maintained a low student-to-teacher ratio to provide more one-on-one interaction, communication and personal growth. The result is a philosophy where the emphasis is "on the process, rather than the product."

Where: 136 Winnicut Road, P.O. Box 570, Stratham
