Working with local environmental educator and ornithologist Dr. Celia Lewis, CELC Middle School students utilize the outdoors as their classroom! Pictured here, students are analyzing data from yearlong investigation of shore birds within the Farm River Watershed.

 

CELC Middle School believes in the power of learning through experience. One of the requirements for students moving into high school is to choose a field of study of interest and take on an internship in that field. Internships have included working at Mosaic Marketing to learn more about graphic design, working with children at Pine Orchard Nursery School, and learning about business alongside a jewelry buyer for Sylvie Collection. Pictured here, student Cade Morris begins his internship volunteering at Evergreen Woods Retirement Community in Branford.
