Tessellations – The Beneventi School

Nature Campus

Our Nature Campus

Tessellations occupies our Main Campus on McClellan Road in Cupertino, as well as our Nature Campus dedicated to our keystone Outdoor Education program. Every child spends nearly a full day each week outdoors at our Nature Campus!

Connection with and respect for nature is one of our core values at Tessellations. We aim to inspire our students to be “at home” in nature and lifelong stewards of our planet. The beautiful natural space at the Tessellations Nature Campus is the perfect setting for outdoor education, which includes weekly hikes, classes conducted outdoors, science experiments and observation, free play and exploration in nature, and camping trips. We want our students to develop a long-term relationship with a consistent natural setting, observing the plants and animals across all seasons. Our unique Outdoor Program provides lifelong memories of time spent in nature, such as reading next to a favorite tree or documenting changes in the environment. These experiences will guide our children’s choices long after graduation.
