Journey School Green Ribbon Selectee
Journey School is a free, public charter school founded in 2000. From its inception, comprehensive green practices have been the norm, and this culture has remained as the school has tripled in size. Journey offers a comprehensive eco-education program where critical and ethical thinking are inherent in the curriculum, the environment is the classroom, and service is a natural extension of the curriculum. Students learn about water conservation, value of soil, reusing solar and wind energy, waste reduction, rain calculations, composting, and energy consumption through the schools' comprehensive eco-education program, which focuses on critical and ethical thinking, nature and environment, and service.
