New Perspectives - Oct, 1991 Issue 

Hampshire Country School
(603) 899-3325
Rindge, New Hampshire
Admissions: William Dickerson, Ph.D.

Although the school does not consider itself a Special Purpose School, according to the material send me, it might be just the place for some children with mild emotional and/or behavioral problems. It is co-ed, works with children ages 8 to 18, has one faculty for every two students, very small classes, and professes more structure than the typical boarding school. The following was taken from the material they sent me.

"Its small size and high faculty/student ratio permit a degree of personal attention and structured activity that often cannot be found in other programs.

Hampshire Country School is not a treatment program, but it often works effectively with youngsters who have had social or behavioral difficulties. It is not a learning disabilities program, but it may be a good choice for certain students who have found it hard to learn in other settings. The school works with, works around, and/or tolerates a variety of idiosyncrasies and particular needs which may be seriously interfering with a child's adjustment and progress elsewhere."
