Maple Lake schools think outside the box

Students are learning to think outside the box at Maple Lake schools where faculty are not afraid to try new approaches to education and know how to foster a student’s strengths and interests.
Every spring the entire sixth grade, led by sixth grade classroom teacher, Steve Fuchs, make the five-hour trip to the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center where students spend three days participating in hands-on learning experiences that could not take place in the regular classroom setting.
Situated on 2,000 acres of land overlooking Lake Superior, students do everything from testing the PH balance of a stream to indoor rock climbing.
