Old Trail School inspires the best and brightest young people in our region. Our learning community fosters conversations and collaborations that encourage children to think independently. By placing emphasis not only on what to think, but also on how to think, our students become creative problem-solvers, raising their voices to ask bigger questions and scale bigger obstacles. That's because, from the moment they join our community, they begin gaining the confidence, knowledge, and skills to thrive—not just at Old Trail School, but also in high school, college, and the rest of their lives.
Old Trail School Reviews
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.
Once we found Old Trail, our daughter blossomed! An example of how Old Trail school's culture stands out is that our only child is seen as a "Future Leader" instead of "bossy" and is patiently taught how to mold her natural leadership strengths into amazing social skills.
Another example of the difference in Old Trail's education programming is learning that is an experience, not simply words in a textbook. Each and every class offers hands on application, and children who struggle are provided the assistance they need without judgement.
Old Trail School is the most worthwhile investment we've ever made for our daughter's future, and we highly recommend the experience!
