Being located in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York, we are surrounded by local history and service opportunities to preserve such history. Therefore, as part of our interdisciplinary curriculum in the Middle School at Poughkeepsie Day, the teachers and students have been immersed in learning about the nature writer John Burroughs, along with doing community service at his nearby nature preserve and residence, Slabsides.
