By foot we explore the wilds;
with hands we work together;
through love we connect to each other.
Balancing heart, head, and hands
through adventures at Black Kettle Farm.
WELCOME TO LAKESIDE
Lakeside School is a farm- and forest-based Waldorf school in Essex County, New York that serves families with young children up to third grade. Situated amidst the Adirondack mountains and the fertile farmland of the Boquet River Valley, our school provides an enriching natural setting for our many programs, including year-round Childcare, a farm- and field-based Kindergarten, and mixed-grade Early Elementary instruction.
