Field Trips

Home » Beyond the School Day » Field Trips

Field trips are designed to involve students in real-life experiences that augment the learning taking place in the classroom.

In the lower grades, such excursions might include visits to local orchards, outdoor educational centers, museums, zoos, and government buildings. Students have also taken trips to Proctors theater to see the ESYO Youth Concert, and other theaters to see theatrical performances.

Students in the middle school participate in overnight trips. Traditionally, the Sixth through Eighth Grade students start the year with a team-building trip to Camp Chingachgook. Later in the year, each grade level takes an overnight trip with the 6th graders traveling to Philadelphia, the 7th graders going to Boston, and the 8th graders spending five days in Washington, DC. Additional day trips occur as tie-ins to the curriculum.

About Brown School

The Brown School community is strong and supportive, and we believe that our students deserve not only an academic education but also a place to enjoy traditions and experiences that they cherish for years to come. Our faculty and administration are committed to mindfully educating each individual student in a nurturing and collaborative environment.

Our School Day

Our school song states that “Brown School is joy, friendship, and laughter. Memories dear, now and long after. Working each day, growing together. Brown School is learning and love.” Even though we have modernized our teaching and offerings, these words hold true even decades after they were written.

Beyond the School Day

Brown School students of all ages have a plethora of options available after the school day is over. Whether it is partaking in the after school or Plus programs that offer a purposeful place for students while parents are working, exploring new interests or established hobbies, or getting together beyond the walls of our school, our Brown School community is strong.
