Teachers plan field trips to go along with something they are learning in class. Parent volunteers drive on most field trips. Past enrichment field trips include these fun destinations:
K to 2nd Grade
Students take day long (between 8 and 10 a year) field trips to local venues, museums, and theaters. Students generally leave around 9:00 and return to school before school ends.
Students also attend between 8 and 10 field trips a year. A few of those trips are further away in distance such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium. In addition, the students generally have one overnight field trip in the spring of their third grade year.
4th to 5th Grade
Students attend programmed field trips such as the art programs offered by the San Francisco museums. In addition, the students do one overnight living history field trip and one overnight nature and science based field trip
Students attend two field trips with a focus on science. In addition, they study ancient civilizations and often go to museums where there are ancient collections.
Students attend the Yosemite Institute for a 5 day field trip in Yosemite which is transformative to all students. In addition, students go on preparation hiking trips for Yosemite. The English teacher often takes students to high school theater productions as well.
