The end of school might be coming up fast, but there is always something going on. The Earth takes shape and the Wizard of Oz takes the stage!

You know what this means! Time for Earth Experiences to begin! Nothing is more "Earth School" than an Earth Experience.

Families often wonder, "how will my student do after they leaves FMES and SFA?" Here are some tidbits to give you an idea of what students that graduated from SFA not too long ago are doing. (Our thanks to former SFA staff member Susan Andree for soliciting this information!) There are many, many more such stories from the last 40 years, and our congratulations to all of our alum that have gone out and made a difference. A Remarkable Difference.

I am doing well, I graduated from University of Oregon last June with a double major in Economics and Finance (math really started to click for me in Connected Math 1&2) and moved back to the Portland area. I have been working as a Financial Advisor for almost a year now.

I will be graduating next spring from the honors college at the University of Oregon with a BS in Human Physiology and minors in Chemistry and Global Health. I'm also taking the MCAT next fall, and applying to medical school the following June.

I am graduating in 40 days from Seattle U with a BS in Cell and Molecular Biology and a BA in Mathematics. I am starting part time at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle as a lab technician, and am also applying to be a medical scribe to do awesome research in one job and get clinical experience in the other. I'll also be applying to med school next cycle to hopefully start in Fall 2020.

I will be graduating at Saint Mary's College of California with a BS in Mathematics/Computer Science. I'm currently doing a lot of traveling as I'm abroad at University of Technology Sydney in Australia.

Next year I am going to be a senior at Georgetown University, studying Science, Technology and International Affairs with a specific focus on how climate change affects the health of vulnerable populations. I am also an Outdoor Education Guide and the VP of the Georgetown Rock Climbing Club as well! I am currently in the process of applying for an Indonesian research Fulbright for after I graduate to study either how rising sea levels affect coastal populations' health OR what impact outdoor rock climbing's ecotourism has on the health of native populations (not quite sure what my focus will be yet—I'll get there).

You know that Montessori emphasizes the experiential components of education. That makes for some creative approaches to ensure that the real world is part of a student's experience. Today OMSI, funded by our "Run for the Arts" money, presented "Scales, Claws, and Expanding Jaws" for the Children's House classrooms. If you're going to make booklets about reptiles, having a Herpetologist explain everything you want to know about reptiles (and what needs to be in place when you draw them!) is a real plus!

There are literally thousands of people around the world that attended the Earth School. When they were here, they went on Earth Experiences, were part of Drama Productions, participated in Sports, and more. Everything that is "Remarkably Different" about the Earth School today started many years ago. As we near the end of the 40th anniversary, we have more memories to share. Thank you, all of you, everywhere, for being part of this community!
