Getting out into the “real world” is an integral part of a well-rounded education, and at Peabody School, field trips are a matter of course. From visiting the Children’s Museum of Richmond in Kindergarten to spending three days on the Chesapeake Bay in 8th grade, our students are exposed to countless off-grounds experiences that not only enrich what they learn in the classroom, but also provide them with opportunities and challenges to help them grow socially and emotionally.
