What & Why?

Environmental Science is the study of the natural world and its inhabitants.

It is a learning process that strengthens our knowledge and awareness about the environment and its associated challenges. It is the devotion to developing the skills to address these challenges, and fostering the attitudes and commitments to make informed decisions and take responsible actions.

Why focus on Environmental Science?

Knowledge of Environmental Science helps children recognize their role and responsibility to themselves, to their neighbors, and to the world. 

This understanding also helps our children become curious about their world around them. It provides our students with the tools they need to address challenges, protect natural resources, understand different perspectives, and take informed actions to find sustainable solutions.
