Classrooms at The Gardner School extend far beyond the building. Teachers use the campus and the rich natural resources in Southwest Washington as outdoor classrooms.
Frequent field trips enhance our thematic studies and parents, community experts, visiting artists and other special instructors are often invited to share their expertise. In addition, students are encouraged to design and participate in service projects that allow them to give back to the community.
Community service is an integral part of the school and teaches students stewardship.
