Field Trips Are A Serious Business.

The Garden School’s Curriculum is truly a hands on program both summer and winter. Our school is confined to a place between many cities at a two to three hour distance, we have made the decision to use school bus transportation and parents’ guidance and help to introduce our students to our own city as well as the cities in our neighboring states in a rotating plan to teach and to delight our children. Every child should have a summer worth remembering every single year. When our children are asked about their summers, they can say, “I had a great summer…we went here and here and there and there and I learned to swim.”

Here are some of the places that we have visited.
