Mountain Shadows is committed to the inclusion of field trips as a valuable part of the curriculum. What is seen and experienced outside the classroom setting gives a different and equally important perspective to students about what they are learning and the world in general. Throughout the grades there are many field trips, both day and, for older students, overnight, that add depth and luster to daily studies.
As a part of the curricula of the Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grade classes, the planning and implementation of the history tours are integrated into disciplines of their respective programs. The intrinsic academic and social significance of these trips to each student and to the spirit of community within the class is immeasurable.
