Student Life

Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education program provides fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders an opportunity for extended hands-on learning. The students currently travel to Astrocamp in fifth grade, Alpine Meadows in sixth grade, Joshua Tree in seventh grade, and the Lower Colorado River in eighth grade. Outdoor Education expands the limits of the classroom through exploration of the natural surroundings of Southern California. Students learn the power of teamwork and perseverance through new challenges by participating in activities such as rock climbing, hiking, archery, and canoeing. These trips provide the chance for students to bond with one another and their teachers while being immersed in nature.
Outdoor Ed provides students with an opportunity to put their money where their mouth is. Students learn to struggle and overcome obstacles while on these trips. They learn to respect community and nature. They learn that you leave a site better than you found it. They learn that they are capable, and that school actually teaches problem solving for life, not just content related information. They learn that they're awesome, and they enjoy each other. The students appreciate the experience. In fact, it's the students who have the most anxiety about the trip that end up liking the trip the most. - Chatom Arkin, Teacher
