Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning provides compelling, real-world learning experiences both within the school and outside in the larger community and natural surroundings. 

 

As an Expeditionary Learning school, Promontory recognizes the value of student research at relevant sites of interest,  learning from local experts, and visiting resource-rich locations like museums, libraries, research institutions, operating businesses, farms, etc.

Promontory students participate regularly in such fieldwork and these outings are a core part of student learning, not merely fun excursions. 

 

Each trip includes specific topics of learning and various projects.  Students complete reflections of their learning upon return to the school.  Below are some examples of recent fieldwork trips and reflections.
