At Old Orchard School, our field trips complement what students learn in the classroom. Students explore their communities and the wider world through trips to Hidden Villa, Montalvo Arts Center, Coloma Outdoor Discovery School, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, and many more. Field trips are deliberately chosen to tie into class curriculum, and allow students to meet experts, do hands-on activities, and, of course, have fun!
Beginning in fourth grade, Old Orchard students go on at least one overnight field trip each year-- students start close to home with history and science camps in California. At the end of their eighth grade year, students travel to Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colorado, for a week of archaeological discovery and field work.
