Field Trips

Field trips are an important part of our well-rounded curriculum. They broaden the children’s interest and bring the lessons that they are learning at school to life. At the Yadkin Valley Community School, we take an average of one field trip per month. These excursions include a mix of indoor and outdoor locations to study art, music, science, history and more. Not only do the students love learning in this interesting, hands-on way, but it also helps to improve their social skills by putting them in new situations with new people.

Previous destinations include:
Old Salem
New River State Park
Surry County Courthouse
Mount Airy Museum of Regional History
Schiele Museum of Natural History
Millis Regional Health Education Center
Pilot Mountain State Park
The Walker Center
Sanders Ridge Organic Farm and Restaurant
