Scholars have the opportunity to attend library weekly. The library is set up as a hub within the school where scholars can make connections with the global community through independent inquiry. Students are taught to use technology and foster an appreciation for literature and learning. Check out Mrs. Grost's blog here.
Physical Education (PE):
Students have physical education every day at Indian Trail as we believe it is important for students to get up and move every day. Indian Trail houses two gyms, a state of the art climbing wall, and plenty of outdoor space. Every day students practice the behaviors and apply the skills to adopt and maintain life-long physical activity.
