Field Trips

At Farnsworth we are known for taking giant leaps. Our kids travel to the source of their inspiration, it's the only way to get the whole story.

We believe that the earlier a student experiences applied math and science the more interest they take in those subjects their whole life. Travel opens their minds to the possibilities of what an education can bring to their life. It expands their imagination and builds confidence as they engage in hands-on problem solving and teamwork with their peers.

Naturally we have high standards to qualify for these out-of-this-world field trips. Exemplary behavior in class and all assignments completed are two of the main criteria. Cost is never a barrier at Farnsworth either. These trips are an incentive to do well and an opportunity to expand your child's horizons.
