The Power of Earth
Evidence now shows that time in nature reflects directly in students' behavior as well as academic success. See our resources for some of the studies.
Students learn from doing. When students struggle with trauma, disabilities, learning a new language and/or mental health conditions, they need the ability to figure things out and express themselves in productive ways.
Our Animal Partners
Children have been working with therapy animals for quite some time. In fact, animals have even helped many adults. Our students will have both the opportunities and responsibilities to work with animals.
