Our K-8 students learn inside and outside in an intimate two-room schoolhouse nestled in the heart of the Metolius Basin. The basin is home to a vibrant community of people, a Wild and Scenic River, and a diversity of plants and animals--all of which have important lessons to teach. The schoohouse, built in 1951, has two classrooms used for mixed-age groups of lower and upper grade students, a multipurpose space, and a solarium. The grounds around the school border many miles of public land and include a sports field, basketball court, and a playground. While students spend most of their time on the school grounds, they leave campus regularly to learn in the field. Students can expect to be learning outdoors approximately 13 hours per week, adding up to 500 hours across the school year!
