About & program

We have also included a document to help better explain what Outdoor School is and why we believe your students should attend.

Additional information regarding what to expect when participating in  the programs at Arrowhead Ranch can be found with a click to your right.  Included are descriptions of the various typical activities the  students will participate in, as well as, the role the classroom teacher  is expected to provide during the week.

DISCIPLINE

Arrowhead Ranch Outdoor Science School has well-defined expectations for  student behavior. Students are expected to cooperate with adults by  following instructions without showing disrespect or being defiant.  During Outdoor School, we strongly believe that positive reinforcement  is the best way to manage discipline issues. At right, the discipline  system and positive reinforcement system can be downloaded to review  with students prior to arrival. Once here, both will be reviewed with  the students on the first day of the program.
