Field Trips

No study is meaningful unless it can be related to the real world, so in addition to the classroom work, the school has frequent field trips. Students can expect to go on at least one field trip a month.

Typically, every student attends at least one play each year. Elementary and middle school students visit the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center to listen to the orchestra play. The school has visited the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, city hall, the 911 emergency center, the Mary Kay Cosmetics manufacturing plant, the fire station, various art museums and more. Students have held mock trials at the Old Red Courthouse, listened to tales of what life was like while in a log cabin and participated in demonstrations on the importance of taking care of the environment while at the Dallas Arboretum. They have observed the morning meeting at the Dallas Morning News where editors were deciding on the next day’s headlines and then visited the facility where the newspaper was printed.

Students who are at or above our Form 3 level (roughly equivalent to fifth grade) go on an overnight trip each year. Destinations have included Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, New York City, South Dakota and Washington, D.C. Students have gazed from the Empire State Building, canoed across Lake Austin, visited the national and state capitols, been to Sea World and the Alamo, visited NASA and gazed in awe at Mount Rushmore. These trips are packed with site-seeing, new adventures and fun.

What is visited depends on the age of the children and the curriculum being covered by the teacher, but we always seek to connect what is being studied to the real world.
