At Schoolhouse Escapes, each module consists of an original opening story, formatted as a picture book and written exclusively for Schoolhouse Escapes. We are sometimes asked where you can buy these books, but for now, they are available only as part of your escape game experience with your students.
We hope you enjoy hearing them as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Sooooo, we've been busy this school year already by (surprisingly) adding another new service for our clients! And the best part is, YOU asked for it! As you may have read in the last blog post, we have recently implemented a good behavior program, which looks...
