Each year offers new chances to develop a deeper understanding of classroom curriculum through experiences in the real world. Freshman participate in the maintenance of the Frog Park Playground and Rockridge-Temescal Greenbelt. Sophomores partner with Playworks, an award winning non-profit that provides full day play and physical education programing in low income schools. Juniors work with Save the Bay and the Presidio Land Trust as part of their Biology coursework. Senior leaders plan a day of giving back for their entire class.
In addition to grade-level community service, students can choose from a variety of ways to get involved in community work, including tutoring at Chabot Elementary School, cooking and serving meals at the Berkeley Food and Housing Project, and volunteering with Children’s Hospital Oakland.
