“Oh, the Places You’ll Go” - Dr. Seuss
Did you know that Nysmith School plans over 45 field trips a school year? Our students take a variety of age appropriate field trips allowing each grade level to plan as many as 6 field trips per year. These field trips allow students to experience and explore away from our regular school environment, giving them a hands-on and interactive experience. Some of our field trips include: Zoos, Nature Centers, Museums, Aquariums and Memorials. The Upper School students have the opportunity to enjoy some over-night field trips to destinations like Philadelphia, Chesapeake Bay and Williamsburg. Some all-time favorites are the Great Country Farm, Gettysburg, Williamsburg, Chesapeake Bay and of course Kings Dominion! Great times, great memories and great learning opportunities. ...
