School’s Out

The Amish and Old Order Mennonite children enjoy a break from school during the summer. However, rather than spending time at the pool or playing video games, they are helping on the farm, working in the garden and manning the produce stands that are in front of many of the homes. Lancaster County has over 200 one-room Amish and Mennonite schools. More information on the Amish educational system and photos can be found here.
