Norwood students take several field trips every year to support the classroom curriculum. Most excursions off campus are day trips to locations that enhance instruction, such as the Kennedy Center, the National Cathedral, and the Holocaust Museum, to name just a few. Beginning in third grade, students go on one overnight trip per year. Third graders visit Jamestown and Williamsburg. Fourth graders catch “40 Winks with the Sphinx,” an overnight trip at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia. Fifth and sixth graders participate in overnight camping trips, which promote community building and focus on individual and team challenges. Seventh graders enrich their study of American history with an overnight trip to Philadelphia. The experiential education program culminates in eighth grade with a three-day trip to New York City, which is tied to their study of 20th century history.
