Pinehenge School 1969
the main house
Pinehenge school was a co-educational private boarding school for students 5-18, situated on the former 200 acre farm of Senator Harold S. Pike
overlooking Keoka lake in Waterford, Maine.
Pinehenge community philosophy was inspired by A.S. Neill's Summerhill School in Leiston, England Everyone in the community had an
equal vote at general meetings held weekly to determine the direction and educational values of the school in many ways. Academically its philosophy was based on the Leicestershire method of free or open academics used in some 8000 British schools at the time.
Through an environment of love, approval, self discipline and freedom, individuals learned to become doers; be responsible for their individual
actions; to be analytical and critical learners; to be able to adapt flexibly and easily to new situations; to discover themselves and be able to pursue their own goals for their own sake and not for the approval of others; and lastly and most importantly, to become emotionally free and happy.
