Field Experiences

A Field Experience to Silicon Valley and SF Bay!

Field experiences are integral to our curriculum. Students participate in several overnight and single-day field experiences during the school year. These hands-on learning opportunities allow our students to access knowledge in an authentic, meaningful, memorable manner. Field experiences are planned to add extra layers of meaning to project period topics.

Examples of Field Experiences

  • A private tour of the Brain Research Center at Stanford University Hospital, including seeing a live brain scan, during a project period focused on learning styles and the brain.
  • An overnight stay aboard a ship in the San Francisco Bay during which students tested water, navigated by chart, and dissected fish for a project period focused on marine ecology.
  • A multi-night stay in Los Angeles for a project period focused on creativity that included: three museum visits, two college tours, and a creativity workshop at Disneyland.
