Teaching students with varying abilities involves more than standard curriculum.
The Waypoint Education Program is designed to collaborate with teachers and school administration to identify goals and tailor lessons that meet the needs of your school, classroom and students. The unique combination of teambuilding and outdoor adventure programming provides an engaging and effective tool to augment school and classroom efforts to help students develop positive social and emotional skills that will transfer back into their everyday classroom and community life.
“I have seen students go from being afraid and anxious to students who are confident and able to take safe risks in their education and in their personal lives.” ~ Special Education Teacher – Mario Umana Academy (Boston Public Schools)
“It was absolutely a joy to see all of our students shine in their own way.” Special Education Teacher, Newton North High School
“After we returned to the classroom I found that as a teacher I was able to tie the grit and determination needed to go rock climbing to grit needed to navigate academics and even peer relationships” ~ Special Education Teacher, Arlington Public Schools
Boston Public School teacher, Alison Brown, worked with Waypoint Adventure to design a series of experiences for her students around the concept of “taking risks”.
