About Us and the Area

Our six-year-old, rapidly growing school will consist of Parent-Child through sixth grade in the 2018-19 school year. We intend to add a new grade each year.

Located in the gorgeous Hudson Valley, Primrose Hill School's 7.5-acre campus on the edge of the Village of Rhinebeck, NY is surrounded by woodland and is home to both farm animals and a large vegetable and flower garden. We value the integration of these elements into the curriculum. We also value accessibility and diversity and are committed to a progressive tuition model.

The Hudson Valley is one of the most beautiful, scenic areas in the US. There are endless hikes, bike routes, and recreational activities as well as many spiritual and holistic communities. We are just 80 minutes by train from New York City and are driving distance to both Sunbridge Institute and Alkion Center, where professional development is available in the form of teacher training and Waldorf teacher conferences. The Hawthorne Valley Farm/School, the Nature Institute, and several Camphill communities are close by as well.
