MHS To Make Disney World Its Classroom

Students from McConnellsburg High School travelled to the Walt Disney World Resort on Sunday, March 14, 2010, to take part in the Disney Youth Education Series Program (Y.E.S.) “Keepers of the Kingdom” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Each year, groups from around the world travel to Walt Disney World to take part in one of the several Disney Y.E.S. programs offered throughout the resort. Most of the programs take place in and behind the scenes of the world-famous theme parks.

Areas of study include career discovery, life management, physical science, natural science, history, art and humanities. The programs use the varied resources on stage and backstage to bring real world examples to the learning experience. These two- to three-hour interactive educational experiences are available a both the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California. They are led by professional Disney facilitators, who help guide the students an assist them in understanding the key learnings.
