Learning Journeys are curriculum-aligned field trips for all MPS students. Students attend Learning Journey programs throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. These hands-on learning experiences take students beyond their classrooms to develop applicable knowledge based on exposure, K3-grade 3; experience, grades 4-8; and exploration, grades 9-12. Each Learning Journey is accompanied by pre- and post-instructional materials and a teacher/chaperone guide. The program is externally sponsored through the MPS Foundation and strives to ensure that every MPS student is provided with a cost-free, equal opportunity in experiential learning.
Transportation for Learning Journeys is arranged and paid for on behalf of schools by MPS Central Services. All schools are expected to participate, and all students are expected to participate regardless of classroom, academic, or personal performance.
