Juniper Hill School Opened by AUNE Alumna

Juniper Hill School for Place-Based Education opened its doors in Alna, Maine, in September. The school, which educates children in pre-kindergarten through second grade, was started by AUNE alumna Anne Stires (MEd ’06). Stires and Zoe Foster are the school’s two teachers.

The school is located along the Sheepscot River, five miles from downtown Wiscasset, Maine. The forty-two-acre Juniper Hill belonged to Stires’ grandmother, Jane Keyes, for forty-five years. Stires’ father, spent part of his childhood there and eventually acquired it after the death of his mother.

Stires also taught at Sheepscot Valley Children’s House, Boothbay Regional Elementary School, and Bank Street School for Children.
