Taking care of the environment, establishing a more sustainable society, and becoming global citizens are cornerstones of the school’s mission and philosophy. To achieve this goal, the science program integrates environment and ecology into all of its courses and all grade levels. Activities such as Eco trips, coastal clean ups, reforestation, recycling, and urban gardening are used to ground the student into this mindset.
