Broadoaks’ facilities reflect the school’s central focus on active learning, community engagement, individual responsibility, and creativity.
Broadoaks’ location on the Whittier College campus offers students of all grades the unique opportunity to get a head start on college and enjoy the resources available to Whittier undergraduates. In addition to receiving specialized instruction from Whittier College professors, Broadoaks children play in Whittier College’s spacious lawns, have lunch in the dining hall, enjoy cultural activities including theatrical performances, and are true members of the College community. Students in upper elementary grades and middle school sometimes attend college classes, campus presentations, and meet with visiting scholars and guests.
Indoors, Broadoaks has created nurturing, home-like environments that promote independence and accommodate different learning styles. Outside learning spaces are important at Broadoaks as well. Young children garden, paint, build, and play freely outdoors throughout the day, not just during scheduled recess times. Older children frequently work on assignments and projects outside as well. Each preschool and elementary classroom has its own garden. There’s both an indoor and outdoor art studio. Elementary and middle school students have access to the entire Whittier College campus for their daily work and play.
