Old Trail School Reviews

You can feel the positive energy of this school the minute you walk into Old Trail. Children are joyful as they enter the building! They are engaged in their learning.

Classroom teachers utilize hands-on experiences: counting and sorting, bar models, math games/challenges, and experiments. Children's writing and reading reflect their passions and interests. The campus is often the classroom - the living machine, the organic farm, sports fields, a solar farm - as well as the National Park, Hale Farm and venues further afield. Students work on collaborative projects, coding, and research, all based upon best practices in education.

The education is well-rounded and balanced. Old Trail School does not skimp on enrichment. Children have 1 to 1 access to computers or tablets from age 5. They embrace enriching experiences in science labs, Edible Education, Spanish classes, swimming instruction, gym class, a thorough art curriculum, and music.

Old Trail is such a special and amazing place! Children are highly engaged and taught to ask questions, to think and to figure things out through hands on projects, working in small groups and independent research. Being located in a national park affords so many wonderful opportunities for learning about nature. Old Trail is very committed to sustainability and the children have such rich experiences to learn through edible education aligned with academic curriculum, going on nature hikes, visiting the school's farm and participating in many other school events, such as Frontier Day at Hale Farm. Old Trail is truly a community and we have formed many wonderful friendships with other families, the teachers and administration. Everyone at Old Trail is focused on the children and each child is encouraged and supported to develop in his/her own special way. It is also a very inclusive community and differences are celebrated and welcomed!
Before coming to Old Trail, our children attended 2 different elementary schools--one public, one Catholic. Old Trail School is head and shoulders above the others. The kids play an active role in their learning, doing hands-on projects and experiments. For example, they're not just reading about the structure of bridges; they design and engineer bridges using popsicle sticks!
They don't merely solve physics problems on paper; they get out of their seats and tackle physics challenges using materials. Even history has come alive with students role-playing as early pioneers and making tools using only elements from nature--to better understand life in the Neolithic era. Old Trail students create a myriad of art projects; learn how to conduct research; plant, harvest and eat foods from the school garden. My kids have THRIVED at this school. I wish I had attended Old Trail myself! It's a gem.
