Learning Beyond the Classroom

The school offers a variety of field trips for all students, EP-12. These range from half-day drives to the local park to Model United Nations (MUN) Trips abroad. Field Trips provide a way for teachers to approach knowledge in a completely new way and for students to have fun while learning. Students have a chance to experience hands-on learning while also being introduced to new environments, cultures and the world beyond.

Classroom field trips are considered part of the school’s curricular offerings and therefore participation by all students is mandatory.

Parents are encouraged and welcome to take part in these educational learning experiences. Information and details will be given to parents ahead of time.
