The Putney School, a private high school in southeastern Vermont, takes a unique approach to education—and it's not simply that they emphasize sustainability in their curriculum. Indeed, the school sets itself apart by taking a hands-on approach to education, combining manual labor, art, and study.

Though the school is unlike any other high school, there is plenty to learn from their approach to education.
