Enriching Student Lives with Unique Experiences
Elective and enrichment courses help TQS students engage in our school environment. Students have a variety of opportunities to explore their interests, passions and skills.
THE OUTDOOR SCHOOL
Each fall, students and teachers in grades 3 and up take an overnight field trip to The Outdoor School in Horsham, a traditional camp setting that specializes in environmental education and cooperative learning.
Students explore 235 acres of woodlands, fields, lake and streams while enjoying experiential-based lessons about science and the environment. It’s a positive learning and bonding time for all.
School-wide ice skating is a tradition that began with our school’s founding. For five mornings in January and February, students and teachers attend ice-skating sessions on Fridays. Parents, family and friends are invited to join.
The final session is a Skate-a-Thon fundraiser. Students raise money by skating laps, and funds are donated to a worthy charity such as Hope Children’s Home in Guyana. In 2015, students raised enough funds to help the organization purchase a washing machine.
This therapeutic riding program introduces Lower School children to the healing power of horses, as they develop coping skills and overcome fears of unknown experiences. By riding and interacting with horses, students develop new relationships with the animals, the horse trainers, and each other.
TQS classes enjoy a variety of field trips each year.
Past trips have included stops at the Museum of Moving Image, Sony Wonderland Tech Lab, Central Park Zoo, Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, the Museum of Natural History/Hayden Planetarium, a scavenger hunt on the Highline, and Broadway Shows, Pennsbury Manor for PA Day, Medieval Times, the National Constitution Center, walking tours of Philadelphia, Crystal Cave, and S.P.L.A.S.H. - The Delaware River Steamboat.
New York City Trip: 8th-grade students explore The Big Apple for an all-day field trip that includes experiencing public transportation, exploring city neighborhoods, and dining at iconic locations such as Chelsea Market.
TQS also offers a variety of special co-curricular learning opportunities that enrich our school day. Specials include:
