    We want students to be participants, rather than spectators, in the world around them. From adventures as simple as a preschool day at the pumpkin patch to the study of cultural and environmental issues facing third-world populations in Asia, Barstow field trips are designed to encourage cultural awareness, as well as thought and analysis of the world in which we live.
