Gaitway High School at Fieldstone Farm
Gaitway High School is the first of its kind in the country! This school operates in a nontraditional setting where students with emotional and educational needs are integrated into the daily workings of a nationally recognized therapeutic riding center. Students receive a comprehensive educational program with a full complement of academic courses and vocational education. They also benefit from the support of low teacher-to-student ratios, emotional wellness initiatives and an experiential learning curriculum. Gaitway School is a collaborative effort of Fieldstone Farm TRC and the Geauga County Educational Service Center.
