Update for Spring 2020
Our full-time Forest School is open to new students for the remainder of the term and for Fall 2020. What makes Forest School serve our students so fantastically in the forest is also extremely valuable in our current online interactive classroom.
We maintain powerfully low ratios for every class—1 teacher to 12 students for our oldest grades, lower for elementary. It's a way for our students currently learning at home to get personalized instruction in academics and connection to nature in their own backyard. If you want to learn more about Forest School's strength in small class sizes for both online and outdoor learning, contact us.
The Forest is our classroom
We are a school of community and nature. Students journey outside and into the forest every day. They learn through collaboration with peers and alongside their mentors.
We dive into naturalist studies and life sciences, fostering research skills that last a lifetime. Journeying beyond nature play, we live with the seasons, forage for wild foods, and make forest tools and crafts. The students of the Trackers Forest School grow with the land, plants, and animals who share our world.
