At Milken, experiential learning is essential, and, therefore grade-level Tiyulim (trips) are a required component of our curriculum. Some learning can only happen outside the classroom--the kind of learning that is absolutely essential in developing students who think well, belong to something greater than themselves and take positive action. Students require a diverse array of challenges and experiential opportunities in order to develop fully and we value experiential learning so highly because the growth opportunity is immense. 

During experiential learning programs students:
  • Distill their learning and growth through a variety of learning modalities
  • Take risks, move beyond previous boundaries, and build confidence
  • Think beyond themselves
  • Engage in opportunities for leadership
  • Explore friendships and build community
  • Understand the value of being present for others
Each trip has been carefully planned to correlate with students' grade-level academic curriculum and essential question, and to offer opportunities for community building and service learning.
