Small Classes & Boarding School Life
Our class size ranges from 4-8 students and we achieve a 5:1 student-to-faculty ratio. As a true boarding school, 90% of faculty and staff live on-campus.
Maplebrook School was founded in 1945 by three visionary women determined to create an inclusive boarding school community dedicated to educating students not well-served by the mainstream educational system. Sunny Barlow, Serena Merck, and Marjorie Finger had a vision, and for nearly 80 years, Maplebrook has become one of the premier boarding schools for neurodiverse students and complex learners.
The mission of Maplebrook is to provide quality academic programs for students with below average cognitive ability, learning differences, and/or who may exhibit a learning disorder. Through small group and individualized instruction, students will be taught and assisted to reach their academic, social, physical and vocational potential, in a caring, supportive and home-like environment that provides the necessary experiences to allow students the opportunity to assume a more independent role in society.
To be recognized as the premier 21st century international boarding schools that serve students with learning differences. Our investment in our students will allow them to reach their highest potential and become resilient, responsible and productive global citizens. As a community, we strive to inspire a commitment to lifelong learning, responsible citizenship and contributions to a better global society—excellence is at the heart of our culture!
