field trips

Educational experiences at the cMoe include programming in science, math, health, fine arts and language arts as well as a strong emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking. Our field trips provide informal learning experiences that are complementary to classroom instruction.

We are pleased to offer two types of field trip experiences year-round to meet the needs of students and educators.
