Field Trips

Field Trips in the Lower School

In the Lower School, our approach to field trips is to provide our students up-close, living, rich experiences right here at school. Rather than a chaotic sprint through a local zoo or museum, our students are to be found in their very own classrooms or elsewhere on our grounds seeing animals up close—getting to feel a snake’s reptilian scales, touch the softness of a bird’s feather, see bees busily working in their hive, and hear from visiting experts. One of our very favorite visitors is the Dallas Zoo itself and their amazing animals!

Frequently, in-school Field Trips will be united with and form a part of one of our grade level curriculum celebration. For more on these celebrations and their important role in the life and culture of our school, visit
