Lower School Trips

Students in kindergarten through third grade experience day trips that integrate with the theme for the year. Students in fourth and fifth grades go on three day/two night trips in the spring, as well as participating in day trips throughout the year.

Some examples of field trips in the lower school include:

  • Kindergarten to Russell Orchard to explore the world around them.
  • First grade to the Butterfly Place, Audubon Wildlife Center, and the Boston Public Garden to ride the swan boats and relive the book Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey.
  • Second grade to the Wenham Museum, Plimoth Plantation, and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
  • Third grade to Smolak Farm, Salem Pioneer Village, Boston’s North End and State House, and the Higgins Armory in Worcester.
  • Fourth grade to Crane Beach, the Sea Coast Science Center, Gloucester, Eastern Point Lighthouse and Coast Guard Station, and a three day trip to Mystic Seaport.
  • Fifth grade to the public library, Halibut Point in Gloucester, a tour of the north shore to study geology, the Museum of Natural History, and a three day trip to Camp Chewonki in Maine.
