About The Logan School The Logan School for Creative Learning is an independent K-8 school for approximately 250 gifted students who are exceptionally inquisitive and hungry for knowledge. The Logan School fosters this love of learning by providing an experience-based education that allows students to develop individually to their fullest potential. With a focus on higher levels of critical thinking, students develop a mature sense of whom they are and how they will connect with the world around them -- skills that will serve them well into the future.
Unit field trips are important components of the Logan educational philosophy. Unit Filed Trip Teachers work collaboratively with Core Teachers to provide hands-on, real-world experiences for each Logan student.
