Field Trips

Field Trips

The understanding that education occurs both in the classroom and outside our immediate school environment permeates and underscores virtually every aspect of TGS’s academic curriculum.

As a component of our music program, students travel to professional music and drama performances several times a year.

Our science classes participate in educational opportunities at:

  • Bonnyvale Elementary Education Center
  • The Grafton Nature Museum
  • The Mount Washington Observatory
  • The Montshire Museum of Science
  • Merck Forest Education Center


Art students visit with local artists and travel to local galleries including:

  • The Brattleboro Museum of Art
  • Mass MoCA
  • The Boston Museum of Fine Arts
  • The Clark Institute in Williamstown, MA
  • The Hood Museum in Hanover, NH


History and social studies classes visit areas of historical significance including:

  • The Putney Historical Society
  • Historic Deerfield
  • The State House in Montpelier, VT


Upper School students have two major trips during their 7th and 8th grade experiences. 7th Graders travel to Quebec City and 8th graders to Nantucket, MA.

TGS also invites visitors with special talents and interests to campus to enhance the curriculum and share their passions with our students.  Given our location, TGS has many connections to storytellers, musicians, poets, artists, athletes, and scholars. All visitors demonstrate the core value of a life steeped in pursuit of knowledge.
