Students have many opportunities to explore sustainability and the science of healthy communities and ecosystems. In Junior Kindergarten students are introduced to composting; Lower School students grow edible plants in our greenhouse; the Middle School Green Team teakes on "green challenges" throughout the year; High School students design projects focused on original inquiry that tackle large ecological challenges. The school maintains a certified green restaurant, strives toward less wasteful and toxic-free maintenance practices and encourages healthy food choices.
Students have unique opportunities to create paths toward sustainable living, and through a drive to learn, experiment, and play, they share new practices within the community. Each experience allows students to develop innovation, leadership, and collaboration, while working toward building an ecologically sound city and world. As founding members of the Green Schools Alliance, Grace seeks to reach out to other schools and be a part of becoming a sustainable city.
