Grade-Level Travel

One aspect of the educational process is learning outside the classroom. These takes place in many ways depending on the grade level of your child. Examples of these learning experiences include:

4th Grade

Texas History Focus at our State's Capital in Austin, Texas. 

5th Grade

Science Expeditions Focus at Allaso Ranch in Hawkins, Texas.

6th Grade

Leadership and Team Building Focus at Sky Ranch in Van, Texas. 

7th and 8th Grade

DC/Virginia Trip
7th graders travel to Washington D.C. While there, they will visit the following attractions: Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, the National Archives, the Smithsonian museums, the White House, and all the monuments and memorials. Students then travel south to Virginia where they tour St. John’s Church (location of Patrick Henry’s famous “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech), Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s plantation), Michie’s Tavern, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Mount Vernon.

Students are required to journal their discoveries and impressions after each site, and collaborate on a class digital scrapbook which is available for parents to purchase if they so choose. This trip serves as an enhancement to the social studies' curriculum which covers U.S. history from Pre-Columbus through the Civil War.
