Mistwood was founded in 1979, with a unique structure and curriculum. The school consistently has an enrollment of 20- 40 students, kindergarten through 12th grade. It is divided into a Grammar school (kindergarten through 6th grade) and a Jr/Sr High School (7th through 12th grade). Although students of all groups interact daily during free recess periods as well as during some combined-group classes, the lower school has a separate curriculum which is dramatically different from the upper school. Classes in all groups are taught by many different teachers, each having expertise and love of the subjects.
