Traditions and Experiences
Throughout the year our students engage in age-appropriate experiences and traditions. They explore in-depth studies of science and cultural studies which include field trips to enrich their learning experience. Students also give presentations on subjects they have researched.
Examples of experiences and traditions include:
Lower Elementary Blue Hill Observatory Trip
Students hike up the hill to explore the observatory and to learn about weather.
Third and Fourth Year EcoTarium Sleepover
Students explore and spend the night at the EcoTarium in Worcester to enhance their science study.
Fifth Year French Play
Students come up with a story line, create costumes and decorations, and perform their play in French in front of their family, classmates, and teachers.
Sixth Year Island School Trip
This trip to the Island School on Cape Eleuthera Institute in the Bahamas is filled with fun, sun and adventure. The central component, however is an in-depth exposure to scientific fieldwork with a focus on learning about bio diversity and sustainability.
