One of the highlights of the social studies curriculum is the St. Augustine overnight trip. Students have the opportunity to learn Florida history outside the classroom walls. During their chaperoned trip, they tour many historical sites. First is a stop at the Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States. Another interesting spot is the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park which provides a rich history, and a sip from the Spring of Eternal Hope. They also tour Flagler College, the Oldest Wooden School House in the USA, enjoy some downtime in the hotel pool, and more. MSPCS students are fortunate to be able to visit the oldest city in America, just a few hours north of Miami. Exploring reinforces the curriculum that is learned from textbooks and is FUN!
