From the waters of bay to the rolling hills of the Ring Mountain nature preserve, MCDS is surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors.
Our unique location allows us to use areas of our campus (view gallery) as outdoor classrooms and to offer students an environmental education that is integrated into the curriculum. We also aim to teach students to be good stewards of the environment.
Outdoor education at MCDS is not only limited to our campus. Beginning in third grade and continuing through eighth grade, students take overnight trips to extend the learning that takes place on our campus. (Learn more about Extended Outdoor Education).
