Learning isn’t restricted to the school campus. Each year
students in grades 2-12 participate in Week without Walls during which students
travel to locations within Tianjin and throughout greater China and parts of
east Asia. Middle and high school students spend a week in another area, experiencing
regional culture and food, learning to work effectively as a team, undergoing
physical challenges, developing problem-solving skills and an understanding of
social and economic issues, and providing service to local schools and
communities. Students in grades 3-5 remain in Tianjin for a shorter experience,
and students in grade 2 camp out in a tent for a night in our on-campus forest.
Week without Walls is a fun but important part of the overall learning experience
that extends classroom learning to the real world.
