At Brook Park School of Environmental Studies, students develop a love and respect for nature as they become strong readers and writers. Students work individually and in small groups to develop problem- solving skills. Hands-on projects that encourage the use of technology and scientific learning tools like microscopes and beakers help to foster children’s natural curiosity.
The school is home to an outdoor learning laboratory that allows children to study and care for chickens
and rabbits. There are also a pond ecosystem and a greenhouse on campus. Snakes, bearded dragons and other creatures reside in classrooms, allowing students a close-up look at how animals live in a variety of environments.
All grade levels utilize a Core Curriculum based on Indiana State Standards, taught in all Lawrence Township Schools. The Readers and Writers Workshop approach is used in Language Arts, Balanced Math, Science, Social Studies, and Social Skills & Community Building
