Meredith, both teachers in the schools of California, became dissatisfied with the restrictions imposed, by the methods of instruction employed in the average school, upon the initiative and opportunity for the expression of personal convictions by teachers. Through years of teaching and studying methods of instruction and the results accomplished they saw a great gap between what the public school is equipped to do and what is demanded of it. They had reached the point where their experience pointed to a better way of doing things intimately related to the very foundation of human education. Since they did not have the opportunity for putting their ideas into practice while teaching in the public schools nor the natural environment conducive to natural education, at their own expense and by making scarifies, they established the Montezuma Mountain School for boys in its present ideal location in the Santa Cruz Mountains, high above Los Gatos and the Santa Clara Valley. In 1912 they were joined by Homer J. Lloyd, who was not only deeply in sympathy with the idea, but also possess keen business ability. Largely through his sacrifice, his untiring efforts, and his sound financial judgment, the school was able to maintain itself until public recognition was assured its founders that the experiment was entirely sound and practical. It was an experiment and they found defects in their system, corrected them and experimented further until their method became more nearly perfect. " (Santa Clara Research website)
