Most Common Partnership Schools for Early Field Experiences

The following are a list of some of the most common partnership schools for field placements. Please note, this is not an exhaustive list. 

If you don't have your own transportation, many of these schools can be reached via the Rapid Bus system. The Rapid website is an excellent resource that includes information about things like fares, bus routes and bus schedules. The main page of the Rapid website includes a trip planner where you can enter your start and destination addresses to find the nearest stops, what bus line you'll need to take, any transfers involved, etc. 

Google Maps also has the ability to view directions using various modes of transportation - driving, bus (including routes, stops), etc.
