Journal
Journal Writing
Outdoor Education is not only a fundamental component of John Muir School's curriculum, but it is the cornerstone of integrated studies.  Children in all grades, kindergarten through eighth, spend one day each week studying science and nature in the outdoors.  Through direct observation, experimentation and sensory experience, children enter into relationship with the natural world, witness seasonal changes and patterns and construct complex concepts about ecosystems, environment and stewardship.

Extended field trips for students in the middle grades allow them to compare and contrast local ecosystems with other natural environments around the state.
