Focus on Outdoor Education

Since our school is located at the base of the Castle Crags State Park, is surrounded by the Sacramento River, and located within easy walking range to many outdoor educational experiences, teachers focus on using our natural resources in their classrooms, taking their classes outside for outdoor learning "labs," or studying water cycles on the banks of the Sacramento River.  For more information on our outdoor education component, please click the link below!
