Located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Hunter School is a small, non-profit residential and day school where young boys and girls with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Asperger's Syndrome and related conditions are nurtured, educated and celebrated.
We consider these children to be “energetically sensitive” in that they perceive information and the world differently than others. We utilize a unique curriculum in our guidance classes called Energetic Mindfulness that teaches children to be in control of their energies, thoughts and consciousness. The typical Hunter students tend to be highly intelligent, creative and loving children who are struggling in a world that is unprepared to deal with his or her differences,. If this sounds like your child, Hunter may be the right resource for your family. We teach children ages 5-15 to thrive and excel in the classroom and beyond.
At Hunter, students discover how to:
- Leverage their unique approach to learning
- Overcome negative thoughts and behaviors replacing them with positive ones that build self-esteem
- Live in harmony with those around them
