About Grove and Redlands, CA

Set in the beautiful and quaint town of Redlands California, Grove has a high school campus and a nine acre farm campus that is a functioning farm with animals, orchards, fields, farm store, barn and historic schoolhouse renovated for classrooms and an events business. The Grove School is going into its 20th year and is one of the oldest and most well established Montessori adolescent schools in the United States.

In fact, the Grove School was the subject of an article in The Atlantic! Read the article, A School With a Sense of Placeto learn more about Grove.

Redlands is a city in southern California, between Los Angeles and Palm Springs.  It's known for its elaborate late-1800s buildings, such as the A.K. Smiley Public Library and the Morey Mansion.

Free concerts are held throughout the summer at the Redlands Bowl, a 1920s amphitheater.  Redlands is also home to the University of Redlands and ESRI, a billion dollar GIS mapping company.  Redlands is in an ideal location with access to outdoor activities at the beach (60 min), the mountains (30 min) and the desert (45 min).
