Washington DC Field Trip

Registration for 2025 trip opening soon!

Do you want to give your child the opportunity of a lifetime?

There is an awesome and unique learning experience available to 8th grade students at Highland Park Middle School.

We are currently opening registration to our 7th grade students for next year's trip.

Highland Park Middle School has had the privilege and special opportunity for the last 20 years to take students on a 4-day educational study program to Washington, D.C.  American History for your child is enhanced through this on-site, interactive experience that allows us to see first hand what a dynamic history we have. The opportunity is open to any interested 8th grader to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The 4-day trip focuses on some of the national treasures, the U.S. Capitol, the Holocaust Museum, and all of the war memorials and presidential monuments. The students are challenged to analyze historic events, turning points and heroes of our past with Washington, D.C. and Virginia as the stage. The trip provides students with a deeper understanding of our history, consequences of choice and the student’s role in the future of America.
