One of the many benefits of being situated in the heart of a 17-acre University is the beautiful outdoor learning spaces. PreK and K-8th grade students enjoy learning outside as much as possible, and different locations around campus are favorite spaces.
“The Green” is a large green outdoor space in front of Tiernan Hall where K-8th grade students are located. Students enjoy recreational activities, book clubs, science lessons, and journal writing in and around this space.
“The Porch” is a large wrap-around porch on University Commons. Steps away from Tiernan Hall, students can gather and work at tables and chairs under the protective roof. Classes also eat outside in these spaces.
The “Outdoor Classroom” is a beautiful enclosed space with a bridge and walkways around beautifully landscaped plants. Children learn, explore, and play in this space daily.
“The Waterfall” is a beautiful and reflective space in front of University Commons where students can work, read, and engage in collaborative projects.
