The Mays School

Throughout the past year, we have continuously encouraged student and family engagement in our outdoor classroom through child-led interest topics and playdates. Materials are added and rotated based upon the season and exploration interests.

One event our outdoor classroom was a perfect location for was the Annular Solar Eclipse in October 2023! Parent participation and volunteering has been vital this year, with parents donating their time and talents to refresh our gardens and create a new mud kitchen.

Our students have an exceptional interest in nature exploration, due in part to their experiences in the outdoor classroom. In addition to exploring the horticulture and entomology found at the school, students are excited to share their discoveries and questions from experiences at home and in local parks.
