Learning differently demands teaching differently.

Visitors often ask about the Eagle Hill method with the expectation that they will hear about very specific, proprietary practices for teaching each traditional school subject. And of course, teachers at Eagle Hill have available in their repertoire many, many of the “methods” to which this question refers. None of these, however, hints at the real genius of Eagle Hill School, which is about a simple but fundamental and profound insight about the inevitability of human diversity.

The remarkable success of students at Eagle Hill School follows from a deep commitment to the idea that difference is the norm—that each human being is better understood as unique than as an example of some type, much less a case of some disability. Every philosophical position and every curricular decision follows from this orientation to individuals.
