" We don't know one millionth of one percent
about anything. " (Thomas A. Edison)

The entire school travels somewhere every Friday for an adventurous experience. We also take a one week long trip each year, typically at the end of the second semester. You can see all of our destinations since 2002 below. Many photographs are taken on each one of our journeys and are uploaded to our flickr account so that parents may save and print them. They can be accessed by clicking the link on the left next to the trip below.
