The White Mountain School, Bethlehem, NH, United States

School Gallery


The White Mountain School is a college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12. Since our founding in 1886, we have remained true to the original focus of New England boarding schools: the development of mind, body, and spirit.  In the context of a traditional liberal arts curriculum, we engage students in authentic inquiry asking and pursuing questions that matter to them. This boarding School has a traditional college preparatory curriculum. However, it is the intellectual engagement and development of the student that is our ultimate focus. Every class is an opportunity to practice the skills, virtues, and habits of mind necessary for success in the 21st century. Within each discipline, we offer a range of courses from introductory-level to Advanced Placement, Honors, or student-designed independent studies. 

Extracurricular opportunities vary from year to year, depending upon the interests of the student body. Current clubs include a cappella, art club, astronomy club, chess club, Citizenship Committee, diversity club, electronics club, National Honor Society, photography club, robotics club, Social Committee, Spectrum Alliance, step club, Student Council, sustainability club and frisbee club.The yearbook, “The Pendulum,” is designed and produced by students, as well as „Ink and Paper,” the student-published literary and arts magazine. Students interested in the performing arts perform in a cappella, dance and theater productions, and informal coffee houses. With a focus on international song and dance, the school brings professional performers and artists to campus for community dinners. Students have opportunities to participate in community service at local events on the weekend as well as through trips within the U.S. and abroad e.g. Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
