Our Intent:

At Altwood, we intend to take students on a journey through Physical and Human Geography amassing geographical skills and connections en route. We intend to inspire in our students a curiosity and fascination on how people and places formulate the world and encourage them to discover their sense of belonging on a local, national, and global scale. As Geography encompasses many “burning issues” at present for our younger generation, we intend to develop a passion and “sense of duty” within students and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to help them live and adapt to an ever-changing world.
