From a kindergarteners' first field study of the weather to experiencing solar power in middle school to our high schools' unique curricular offerings  (Biotechnology, Earth Science, Marine Ecology, Environmental Science), students engage in various learning opportunities related to environmental sustainability. Many students extend their learning beyond the school day through environmental clubs and service projects.

  • Elementary hands-on science studying weather, plants and animals, rocks and minerals, erosion, and ecosystems.

  • Middle School students study micro life, solar power, plate tectonics, ecology, and weather.

  • ETL curriculum includes the Living Building Challenge project, where students design and construct prototype buildings that meet the seven petals of the LBC.

  • The Art Department at the HS has a "dye garden" they use in their classrooms.

  • The environmental science curriculum includes labs where students perform physical and chemical testing of water and soil samples from local sites to determine the overall quality of these resources.   

  • The Environmental Club has existing partnerships with the Haverford Township Environmental Action Committee (EAC) and Shade Tree Commission (STC) to help construct local rain gardens and plant native trees within the community.
