Beyond the Classroom

Preparing students for life beyond school.

One of the simplest ways to help students advance and prepare for the higher demands of today's society is by incorporating learning experiences that extend beyond the classroom. 
Students who have more opportunities to learn outside of a classroom setting benefit from increased self-esteem and become more engaged in their own education. These opportunities help teachers create enthusiasm for learning, provide real-world context, and increase self-awareness – setting the stage for success in life beyond school.
