Scope of Work

  • The master plan was created with the help of outdoor education experts, partner organizations, students, families, staff and community members. The 2.8 acres of open spaces surrounding Welby's school building will feature demonstration gardens, outdoor classrooms, and a history walk. These additions will enrich learning experiences for all children and closely align with the school’s Expeditionary Learning model.
