Videos Spotlight Museum School Students and Staff

A video produced by the Georgia Governor's Office of Student Achievement highlights The Museum School's unique Museum in a Box program!

As the recipient of a federal Race to the Top grant through the governor's Innovation Fund, our school uses museum-style trunks to share its hands-on learning model with elementary and middle schools across the state. The video features a number of Museum School students and teachers doing what they do best - exploring!

In addition, this fall, some of our third-grade students starred in a video promoting interactive classroom teaching tools from the Promethean company.

Exhibit Night: When Our Little Explorers Shine!

Exhibit Night is a special time at The Museum School: You never know who or what you'll find on display. Four times a year, our students re-enact pivotal moments in history, conduct science experiments and show off their work, from hand-crafted zoos and rainforest models to sun dials, gravity rooms, a student garden and so much more!

Be our guest at the next Exhibit Night:
Thursday, march 10, 2016 from 5-8 p.m.

Going Greener

The Museum School is an applicant for the Grants to Green program - a partnership helping nonprofit organizations become more green by reducing energy and water use.

The ongoing effort to achieve greater sustainability is just one of the many ways our school lives its core values every day!
