A

nderson School places a high value on learning outside of the classroom. There is no classroom that can assist in building a conceptual understanding of the world better than the world itself. Outside, students are engaged in real world experiences which stimulate further interest in a subject or area of study. A high enough emphasis cannot be placed upon travel inside and outside of our great city: Fort Worth. Museums and destinations aplenty decorate its unique landscape and serve as teachers within themselves.

To truly understand what someone is missing inside these great attractions, a student should travel there many times over the course of their life; each time taking away a new experience and learning more about a concept. Our extensive travel facilitates what another day in a classroom cannot: experience. Our travel helps solidify concepts and study presented in class, as well as assisting in the instruction of managing finances, etiquette, and socialization. In addition, it brings joy to learning, which is crucial if the pursuit of knowledge is to continue throughout a student's life, as we believe it must.

Our entire school travels every Friday for an adventurous experience. We also take an overnight trip each year, typically at the end of the second semester. Photographs are taken on each one of our journeys and are uploaded to our flickr account, so that parents may enjoy them. They can be accessed by clicking the link labeled “Photos” on the left of each trip below.
