One of the most unique aspects of our school is the Science and Nature Center. The Science and Nature Center is home to over 70 animals, including a reptile house and an aviary. Each week, students spend time in the Science and Nature Center discovering interesting facts as they discuss the history and origins of each breed. Studying and caring for the animals under the direction of our animal and nature specialist helps our students to develop a sense of responsibility and respect for all living things and brings real life lessons in science, discovery, nature, history and wonder to our students.
For the Elementary Division, Animal & Nature Studies lessons are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and cover the entire life science curriculum.
*Note: This program is available for Oxnard Campus students. Collins Campus students will have opportunities to visit the Science and Nature Center throughout the year.
