H.A.S. students take trip to the Outer Banks

Highland Adventist School students recently spent a week studying science and history in the Outer Banks of North


During the trip, the students visited the North Carolina Aquarium to study about shark anatomy and snake facts, Festival Park where they studied the early history of English exploration and settlement in the area, and the Wright Brothers Memorial to study the history of flight.

Additionally, the students learned about the history of the OBX area through a guided kayak tour of the OBX sound.

“We flew kites on the Jockey’s Ridge sand dune as we watched the sunset, climbed a lighthouse, played miniature golf, and spent a day on the beach,” said Cheryl Jacko, principal. “This learning experience was a great way to end our school year.”

Highland Adventist School’s Big Spring Field Trip program is a regular part of the school’s innovative curriculum for students in grades K-12.
