NEW HARTFORD — With only 10 students, the Montessori School of Greater Hartford’s campus at Millstream Farm is one of the smallest classrooms in Litchfield County. The campus, with classes for seventh through ninth graders, has been operating for six years on the 30-acre Millstream Farm, located on 741 Steele Road. The owner of the farm, Caren Ross, is also a teacher.
The program is very unique for students and much different than typical middle schools.
