Learning doesn’t happen only in the classroom at Reid School. Frequent (at least two a month) field experiences provide hands-on learning in museums, historic homes and villages, Federal Reserve bank, diamond factory, businesses, transportation centers, architectural firms, an artist’s studio, symphonies, Native American Pow-Wow, and a mine, to just name a few. The use of field experiences and resource persons who come into the classroom to add “spice” to the lessons increase students’ interest and knowledge in the subject they are currently studying.
The Preparatory Level students travel further afield. Traveling to different destinations each year, such as: Boston, New York City, Washington D.C., London, Spain, Greece, China, Japan, and the Yucatan Peninsula. Lessons are prepared in advance for students and parents to study as they travel. Outstanding history teachers/professors, art and sculpture experts teach as the students travel.
