Ninth Grade Expands Learning during Trips Week

The Upper School classroom expanded to destinations all over the country. Ninth graders traveled to Florida to study marine biology, the American South to trace the Civil Rights movement and the Pacific Northwest to learn about ecology and environmental science.

Students spent the spring semester preparing for these one-of a kind trips.  In the classroom, they engaged in a rigorous study related to their chosen destination before immersing themselves in the “real world” to experience history, culture and science exploration first-hand.
