Learn more about the Architectural Origins of Randolph School and the Carriage House.

In the Downstairs are cozy spaces for cuddling up and listening to stories, tables on which to do projects, and a climbing/playhouse structure which is constantly transformed by the children into stores, zoos, beehives or space stations. An extensive block building room is the heart of many creative structures and fantasies. Also in the downstairs of the building is a newly-renovated kitchen for cooking projects and school feasts.

The Upstairs classrooms contain informal groupings of tables and chairs, computers, shelves full of math materials, books, science and nature specimens. A carpeted block room is a social center for all of the students. Educational games are available for the students to use and explore.

On the first floor of the Carriage House behind the main building is a large multi-purpose room that is currently being used as a classroom for our 5-6-7s Group and contains much of our library. It is used for music classes as well as all-school gatherings. Upstairs is a lofty open floor that is home to our Art Studio. Bright light and the sounds of the stream down the hill create a unique environment for our students to explore many styles and forms of artistic expression.  


Outside there are separate playgrounds for younger and older children with age-appropriate climbing structures. A field behind the school is an ideal setting for soccer, ultimate frisbee, or freeze tag and often serves as our school gym during PE. A number of historic maple trees allow for our annual sugaring project in which children tap the trees, collect the sap, and boil the sap into syrup. The school is also adjacent to 110 acres of town park, which we utilize for hiking and natural science experiences. Our own property includes 4.5 acres of woods that are available for exploration and contemplation.

In the wintertime, our students are thrilled as they guide their sleds faster than anyone has ever gone before.
