Redding School of the Arts Green Ribbon Selectee

The first school campus worldwide to be certified LEED Platinum in 2009, Redding School of the Arts is a charter school that achieves high academic standards via an interdisciplinary, thematic approach in a multicultural environment emphasizing visual and performing arts. The school has a 121-kilowatt photovoltaic system, solar water heaters, a wind turbine, and a 175,000-gallon underground water storage tank for rainwater collected from the roof, which is used for 100 percent of school grounds' irrigation. The school promotes monthly city bus passes and cites potential family savings through an e-newsletter, and ridership has increased 20 percent since 2012.
