Field Trips

Devereux Glenholme students enjoy the opportunity of traveling to different locations throughout the year on field trips, allowing them to experience science, history, and culture beyond our campus. On a recent field trip to New York City students visited the Tenement Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here is one student's reflection of the trip:

We had been studying immigrants this semester along with Section Five. Someone in our class had suggested a field trip a couple of weeks ago and it actually came true. My favorite part of the trip was when we went to the Met. It was a long trip but when we got there everyone was excited. We got out of the bus, split into our groups, and the adventure was on. First we had lunch at the cafeteria where we got anything we wanted. Then we went to modern art, and from there we went to Photography. My favorite part was the modern art section where I saw some pretty interesting pieces. I enjoyed all about it, but my favorite was the modern art section.    -- Jeremy P.
