Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education

John Muir Magnet School is  founded on the principles of experienced-based education and intellectual concept construction.  Through integrated units of study, outdoor education, the arts, and direct academic instruction,  children have in-depth learning experiences.   

Children at John Muir learn by experiencing the world physically. The John Muir School, unlike other Ashland Schools, requires children to participate in extensive hiking/backpacking activities. These activities, along with classroom learning, are carefully designed to provoke thought and reflection while addressing state standards and helping students to foster a deep connection with the natural world. . Follow-up discussions allow children to collaborate, construct their own meaning, and develop skills to integrate experience, knowledge and concepts.
