our environmental mission

In the end, we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we’ve been taught.

Our Environmental Mission:

  • Heighten students’ environmental awareness and to promote stewardship through developing ecological values out of first-hand experience.
  • Modeling sustainable school practices such as:
    • respectful use of carefully sourced materials (for example: our website is hosted by a 100% carbon neutral business)

    • encouraging waste-free lunches

    • encouraging organic and local sourcing of products

    • use of green energy alternatives

  • Understand sustainability as an entire web of relationships in community, interacting with other communities – human and non-human – in ways that enable them to live and develop according to their nature
  • Collaborate with members of the school community and the wider community to attain our goals
  • Work toward becoming a carbon-negative school
