Programs & Activities

Outdoor Education

John Muir Magnet School is  founded on the principles of experienced-based education and intellectual concept construction.  Through integrated units of study, outdoor education, the arts, and direct academic instruction,  children have in-depth learning experiences.   

Children at John Muir learn by experiencing the world physically. The John Muir School, unlike other Ashland Schools, requires children to participate in extensive hiking/backpacking activities. These activities, along with classroom learning, are carefully designed to provoke thought and reflection while addressing state standards and helping students to foster a deep connection with the natural world. . Follow-up discussions allow children to collaborate, construct their own meaning, and develop skills to integrate experience, knowledge and concepts.


Art Focus

As part of the arts emphasis at the John Muir Magnet School, students participate in our Arts Focus Program.  Each trimester students enroll in art based elective classes of their choosing.  Second and third graders have the opportunity to participate in one class per trimester, while fourth through eighth graders get to participate in two.  Once a week, for 45 minutes each, Art Focus activities range from music lessons to rock band, ceramics and painting, to origami, knitting, hip-hop, yoga, chess, and handwork, as well as many others. The John Muir Magnet School relies on a number of parents and community volunteers to facilitate these Art Focus opportunities.
