Outdoor Classroom

Once a barren courtyard, McFadden teachers and students have worked diligently to transform the unused space into a beautiful outdoor classroom. Initiated in 2011 by former MSE teacher, Mrs. Christa Campbell, the project has come to fruition and continues to serve as an outdoor learning environment for all students. The garden provides students with the opportunity to explore and get a hands-on learning experience.  Mrs. Joan Merryman is serves as the master gardener.
