Welcome to Schoolhouse Escapes!
Schoolhouse Escapes is an education-based company that provides opportunities for teachers to observe their students engaged in problem-solving & collaborative activities based on standards appropriate for their grade. Our schoolwide games are designed to supplement your entire educational program to improve achievement for all students, particularly the lowest-achieving students (we have super fun methods we do this!). We use the escape game concept morphed into unique educational games that will challenge students to recall strategies they have learned throughout the year in order to complete the puzzles and “win” the games.
(Don’t worry, we won’t have kids ‘escaping’ all over the place!)
- Grade Level Appropriate
- Designed to Reinforce Common Core Standards
- All the Fun of a Field Trip Without Packing a Lunch!

If you are interested in hosting an on-campus escape adventure, we are happy to accommodate as many students as are in your grade level. Each game lasts approximately 60 minutes, with a 15 min. required reset.
Each game we develop is Common Core standards-based (we show you the standards covered) and will require students to work in collaborative groups, with rewards for kindness and patience, and will emphasize each student’s unique strengths, while they solve the problems by applying knowledge they have already.
You place your students into groups, we read them an immersive story, and then they are off to the proverbial races! Don’t worry if your class gets excited and loud–we actually LOVE that!
At the end, we will take class photos with “out signs” (the signs people hold at the end of typical escape games), and each child will leave with a small trinket once they solve the mystery or puzzles or clues, or build the required element to finish the game.
And, unlike the traditional escape rooms, we have a 100% success rate!
(They really win. Legitimately. We promise.)
At Schoolhouse Escapes, we take special care to ensure that EACH student, regardless of skill level, has a fun and rewarding experience and will feel AS IF they contributed equally to the success of the game. It’s sort of our thing.
So far, Schoolhouse Escapes has used only social media and personal contacts for marketing; we have been extraordinarily blessed that we haven't had to rely on traditional paid marketing techniques yet to fill our appointment book with reservations. This week, we...
We finally unpacked our office. This is a sign of progress and a blessing for three reasons. First, it means that we can stop living out of boxes, saying things like, "In which cardboard box are the clocks?" or "The new locks are over there beside the cat litter," and...
We swear that the only reason Schoolhouse Escapes flew to Nashville was to attend Transworld's Room Escape Show and Convention. The. Only. Reason. We just managed to squeeze in some fun and touristy things while we were there! Lucky for us, our work is like a vacation...
