The Garden at MockingbirdThe Garden at Mockinbird began in 1996 from grants and donations. It has grown into a 20,000 square foot outdoor science lab. An herb garden, wildscape, greenhouse, pond, rockscape and a compost area complete the lab. There are 35 class rows for food and fiber crops. All students plant vegetables, harvest, study insect populations, prepare soil, compost and make landscape plans. This provides the students with a hands-on approach to exploring science through cross-curricular experiences. Our beautiful garden/outdoor science lab has received generous support through volunteers, donated supplies and landscaping/building materials.
Mockingbird competes in a variety of district UIL competitions throughout the year. We have teams involved in the following competitions:
- Academic UIL- Spelling, Listening, Math
- Lone Star Challenge
- Destination Imagination
- The Show Choir
