To grow healthier communities by providing the most effective childhood education through physically engaging lessons and ample time in nature.
It is our Vision to provide our students with an authentic,
well-rounded education intended to foster the confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills they will need to be successful in the greater community.
CONNECT WITH NATURE
We believe that a nature-based, arts-oriented education is the most effective form of education, as it is truly the most natural essence of learning there is.
We believe that hands-on learning in nature builds confidence, self-awareness, individual, and collective responsibility.
WHAT OUR COMMUNITY IS SAYING
My daughter comes home every day with stories of her outdoor adventures and the fun she has exploring the forest with her teachers and friends. She is more engaged and excited to learn as her teachers support her academic growth through hands-on, meaningful projects. There is no doubt that she has developed a greater sense of independence and confidence since attending Woodson Branch... we are so grateful she has this opportunity!
