Sustainability

Annie Wright Schools are committed to developing a culture of environmental sustainability, characterized by efficient use of resources, a healthy environment, an ecological curriculum, a nutritious food program and an engaged community.

Students in Preschool to Grade 12 learn about the environment and how they can make a difference, both in and out of the classroom. Projects range from building boats with recycled milk cartons to developing and maintaining a comprehensive composting program in our own dining room to speaking persuasively about global sustainability.

The Green Team, comprising members of faculty and staff from throughout the schools, has spearheaded a number of greening efforts, including replacing disposable paper products with reusable ones in the school dining room and eliminating disposable water bottles on campus.
