Beyond the Classroom

We give students opportunities to make real world connections by moving beyond the classroom.

Field trips provide access to wider resources, allowing students to apply their skills and knowledge. Overnight trips provide room for exploration, expansion, and expression of who our students are as people.

Experiences in the outdoors build community and foster stewardship of the natural world and its resources. They also inspire self-confidence and resiliency beyond pen, paper, and keyboard.


Our students engage in a variety of events throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area, musical performances at non-profit venues, and other trips that help connect them to our Mission District neighborhood.
