At The Northstar School, we believe that learning is not confined to traditional classrooms. Our open courtyards and outdoor learning space provide our learners with the perfect environment to engage, ask questions, and make connections, deepening their understanding of the world.
Nature becomes our co-teacher in these open-air classrooms, fostering a sense of interconnectedness and environmental stewardship. As the Bauhinia - Orchid Tree - blossoms on our campus, so do the minds of our learners. Our commitment to outdoor learning is a reflection of our belief in nurturing not just academic growth, but also the development of compassionate, inquisitive individuals who appreciate the profound lessons the world around us has to offer.
The Bauhinia tree found on Northstar campus flowers in early winter. Currently, the trees are in peak flowering season. It is a sight to behold. The flowers have very distinct observable parts that our science educators are able to use in their academic units. We believe that it makes more sense to go outside in our campus, under the tree and pick up a flower and observe it to understand the parts of the flower in your hand. This is a better learning experience compared to a diagram in a book or a screen. This is one example of Northstar’s approach to experiential learning. Visit our campus to see our flowers in bloom.
