Beyond the Classroom
Oregon Shakespeare Festival!
This wonderful opportunity to travel and see some of the best theater on the West Coast is part of our English Curriculum for September and October. We spend two or three nights in the dorms at Southern Oregon University, see two to four plays at OSF, take theater classes and explore the beautiful town of Ashland.

We have a backpacking club that goes on three multi-day trips during the year. Since academic days are missed, you must have a C average to participate. We also expect you to attend the club meetings and participate in the planning process. This includes readings pertaining to where we are going. Parents are welcome. Please talk to Sam or Violet if you're interested. Click here to see pictures of previous trips:
Camping together is the way we start our year for middle and high school students. We get together for a week to plan, agree on our laws, get our systems set up, elect our tribal leaders and get to know each other. We come away from that first week connected. We love having this time to get to know our students as people and to begin our work for the year together. Click the button above for more information about this year's camping trip.
Forest School is an educational program for young children that takes place outside, in all kinds of weather and all kinds of ecosystems. It allows children to learn about their world through play and exploration. Teachers support learning with stories, songs, and activities that help develop a child's social, physical and emotional skills, as well as their academic skills. We offer a half-day program for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students.
