northviewThe Northview Learning Garden gives children a hands-on experience with nature. The outdoor classroom allows teachers to lead their K-6 curriculum outside, conducting art projects and science lessons. With native plants and stones of the Flint Hills eco-region, students will gain knowledge and be grateful for a 'sense of place' in the Flint Hills.
