Learning is more than the Classroom

The Banneker Student Experience

Exposure to the Arts

Banneker prides itself on a curriculum that exposes students to the visual and performing arts.  Banneker students learn many forms of art expression, from paper and pencil portraits to dance performances that highlight the many talents of our students. As a STEAM school (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) our students get exposure to the world beyond the classroom.

Field Trips for fun and learning

Banneker students are explorers as well. Students take field trips to see Plymouth, the starting point for our democracy. Students will visit the Museum of Science, the museum of Fina Arts and a number of other locations so they can get the exposure they deserve to the local site of Massachaussets. 

Enjoying the outdoors

Banneker students also experience nature and the outdoors through activities such as skiing, rock climbing, tubing and camping.  Before students graduate they will have many opportunities to experience the joys of nature and the fun of group experiences outdoors.
