"Students reap the benefits of fresh air and oxygen as they receive instruction in the outdoors. This practice has improved their ability to learn. Academic levels and test scores have improved as a result of the opportunity to study in the nature center. Our 'No Child Left Inside' theme reinforces the benefits of education in the outdoors. Students are involved in outdoor studies which minimizes the possibility of Nature Deficit Disorder." - Kathryn Fouks, Principal
