Review Rhinelander Environmental Stewardship School
Rhinelander Environmental Stewardship School
RESA is one classroom of 7th and 8th graders, so it is very difficult to rate based purely on test results. The school is devoted to place-based education to study the natural and cultural resources of Northern Wisconsin. Students participate in real scientific research, write articles for a monthly newsletter and make quarterly oral or multi-media presentations, guided by a very knowledgeable teacher. The great outdoors is RESA's teacher and classroom, and students bike, hike, ski, snowshoe and canoe to reach research sites. Students are challenged in a variety of ways to study materials normally not encountered until high school, or later, such as the essays of Wisconsin native, Aldo Leopold, author of "A Sand County Almanac." My son loves this school, has made great improvements across the board in his studies, and best of all, I never have to remind him to do his homework!
