"We use a systems thinking approach; nothing is studied in isolation; multiple perspectives are an essential component…" "The design of the school allows for outdoor interaction with windows, outdoor hallways, archways that pull the breeze through." "By using our campus for learning students interact with the green designs and understand what makes our buildings special and different." "…whenever we can engage a student to ask "why" and to see their questions explained and answered fuels the human mind to gain further knowledge."

"Our students are learning how to live their future lives, and this principle [sustainability] will be critical to the success of their future society. " "They are making this thinking THE WAY TO THINK! They are teaching their parents and grandparents. " synthesizing a process “What we're missing are the roll-up studies of a green super-school: a collection of environmental, education, architectural, and operational best practices" Rachel Gutter, Director
