Our school has its very own petting zoo! When you do a tour, make sure to say hi to our goats, Buck and Billy and our pig, Georgia!  We also have mini chickens a Sonoran desert tortoise! 

Benefits of Introducing Kids to Animals

 

Staying true to the culture of our Gilbert community, we are providing a new program which introduces children to the benefits of taking care of our environment and being good stewards of the animals God has placed into our care.

 

A study by the University of Colorado recently outlines the lifelong benefits of agriculture, which include:

 

- Children who are more likely to eat fruit & veggies​

- Enhanced overall student achievement

- Positive attitudes and anticipation of school

​- Increased responsibility to care for the environment

​- Positively impact mental health and well being

- ​Increased self understanding and the ability to work well in groups
