We had an incredible 5th-grade class trip to Cal Poly! Not only was it a fun-filled experience, but our students got to see what college life is like and what's possible through furthering their education. We're dedicated to helping our students feel empowered and capable in any classroom they enter, and this trip was a fantastic way to give them a first-hand glimpse of a university and the opportunity to learn by doing as part of Cal Poly's incredible experience.
