A Bit About Us

Bringing Students to the Science

Penikese Island School, Inc, (PIS) a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1973 and based in Woods Hole, MA.

Continuing our long tradition promoting education and wellness through the unique, pristine and beautiful environment of Penikese Island, PIS today provides schools and educational organizations with the unique opportunity to Discover Penikese, spending a day (or longer) visiting Penikese Island.

As an established non-profit managing a very unique natural resource, PIS is in a special position to begin more broadly sharing Penikese Island with the wide, enthusiastic audience we have identified. Our island trips present a particularly exciting opportunity for school children.

Over the past two years, Penikese Island School has shared the natural beauty of Penikese Island and our unique, experiential and nature-based educational programs with hundreds of students from coastal Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
