Junior School Experiential Education

At the Junior School, we incorporate many forms of experiential learning and outdoor exploration into our everyday life. In the classroom, students build models, do crafts, re-enact the rituals of historic cultures, and engage with their topics of study in a myriad of active ways. The school often brings in special guests to lead students in activities related to the guest's field of expertise.

Field trips are a huge part of Junior School life. Our students visit historical parks, local nature conservation areas, and astronomical observatories. Bringing students out of the classroom engages them in their studies, gives them a chance to demonstrate their knowledge, and helps them connect the topic of study to the real world.
