The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education provides a hands-on outdoor experience.  During the fall and spring, K-8 students and their teachers spend a full day a week there, and Preschool students visit twice a year. Our school's long-standing environmental education program had been greatly enhanced by collaboration with the Center's educators.  The observations and interactions at the Schuylkill Center lead naturally to science studies and allow for the integration of other subjects as children write nature-inspired poetry and explore physical education within the natural environment.  The Schuylkill Center, located in the northwest corner of Philadelphia, in the neighborhood of Roxborough, is a 25- to 35-minute bus ride from the school.
