Students may earn community service hours, internship credit, or Work Study credit by prior arrangement with their schools.

GREAT BASIN OUTDOOR SCHOOL is a Nevada non-profit organization devoted to youth development in the outdoor classroom. Activities connect classroom learning to real-life experiences to promote insight, confidence, and a love for learning and the outdoors.
HANDS-ON DISCOVERY in the outdoor classroom builds cooperation, respect, and responsibility and exposure to related career fields during four-day field studies through standards-based science, language arts, math, social studies, and the arts, individual and group activities.
High school absences can be pre-arranged and excused as school business.
