My Students

We are a Title 1 school in Flushing, New York! Our students come from diverse backgrounds and create a unique blend typical of a New York City school. This is the first year of our AP Environmental Science program and there are 54 hard working, motivated and talented students.

So many of our students have never traveled outside of New York City, and this camping trip experience will connect them with real AP Environmental topics they learned all year!

They will have an opportunity to discover nature with authentic, hands-on learning while working with park rangers to conduct soil and water chemistry tests, explore the forests through nature hikes, and participate in team-building activities. This might be the first time our students will see a star-filled night sky!

My Project

AP Environmental science is a rigorous class that studies the ecosystems, biomes and nature of the world around us. Our students in New York City rarely get the chance to ever experience nature in its truest state. This camping trip is the first time many of our students have ever left the concrete jungle of New York City! Frost Valley YMCA is the perfect location for our students to get an authentic experience with nature and the outdoors. They will have the opportunity to see mosses and lichens, and mature trees in a forest- things that they learned about in the class but may have never seen up close. This 3-day, 2-night experience will give them the opportunity to break from the modern world and get in touch with roots- tree roots, plant roots and their own human roots which connect us with our planet!
