OUTDOOR EDUCATIONTampa Bay International School is primarily an Outdoor School. On a typical day, around 90 percent of our instruction takes place beneath the shade of large oak trees, on a spacious field where children have plenty of room to learn and explore. Outdoor education brings numerous benefits — first and foremost, a deeper connection to nature that helps facilitate our many lessons concerning the importance of taking care of our planet. Being constantly outside is also an important component of our school’s strategy to fight the spread of the coronavirus. Students sit at picnic tables they painted with their families; other times, they bring folding beach chairs wherever a lesson might take them, typically to form a guided reading or math group in the shade. And our large outdoor space is the perfect setting for students to simply observe the world around them, as they sometimes do for a science or visual arts lesson, or to work in our herb and vegetable garden. We are truly fortunate to be able to be outside as much as we are.
