The Blue Rock
School was founded in Palisades, NY in 1987 and occupied an original
one room school house on Oak Tree Road. Margaret Flinsch began the
school with a group of interested teachers seeking a meaningful
approach to the education of children. Many years before, Mrs. Flinsch
founded the Princeton Nursery School that is still thriving today.
Her lifelong exploration of the educational process, her insight,
and her experience has led others to reexamine the role of the teacher
and the nature of the educational process. It is her inspiration
that has given the Blue Rock School its unique humanistic and creative
approach, evident in each classroom in the school.
