Nurture Through Nature.
Valley Creek School is situated in Hidden Valley Ranch’s heart and boasts an expansive green space for middle school students. Our vision is to create outdoor learning spaces that support 21st-century skills: Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.
Our first step in creating outdoor learning spaces is to install multiple pedestal tables and benches surrounding our school. This furniture will provide students with gathering spaces for outdoor classrooms, seating for lunch, casual peer interaction, and relaxation.
Research tells us that spending even a short amount of time outside is restorative and reverses temporary issues of fatigue and concentration. Being in nature can also offset the effects of ADD/ADHD, depression, cognition difficulties, and nature-deficit disorder.
