What We Do
Out Teach (formerly REAL School Gardens) coaches and inspires teachers on how to take their classes outside to learn, then builds them engaging outdoor learning laboratories, in order to unlock student performance with the power of outdoor experiential learning.
Numerous studies have shown that two of the most powerful indicators of student academic achievement are the effectiveness of their teachers and their own engagement in their learning. We believe in using outdoor, experiential learning as a tool that makes students more engaged in their learning. We also believe in helping good teachers become great, by expanding on their base of skills and helping them feel able and empowered to take their classes outside to learn, adding another powerful tool to their teaching toolbox. So when talented, effective teachers take their students outside to engage with their learning in a real, relevant, hands-on way, we see significant gains in academic achievement across all subject areas.
