Hill School, a Fort Worth college preparatory, full-service school for students who learn differently, has launched a $500,000 outdoor campus improvement project dubbed the “Take It Outside” campaign. Amon G. Carter Foundation pledged a $150,000 gift for the initiative in March 2019.

The funds from the “Take It Outside” campaign will result in the construction of a collaborative outdoor learning space, an improved school entrance, an updated lower school playground space, a state-of-the-art running track, an outdoor amphitheater, raised planting beds for ecological education, and peaceful outdoor spaces for reflection and mindfulness activities.

“At Hill School, we are devoted to inspiring capability in all our students,” said Susan Little, development director at Hill School. “With the ‘Take It Outside’ campaign, we will be able to provide increased opportunities for students to share creative outdoor spaces where cross-curricular learning, as well as social and emotional growth, can take place.”

Slated for a summer 2019 kickoff, the cost of the improvement project totals $500,000, with $180,000 pledged to-date by community foundations, including the Amon G. Carter Foundation, Hill School Foundation, Hill Parent Association, and Hill School’s student council.
