Student Learning

Students learn about sustainability through instruction on conservation and natural resources in science, social studies and other areas.

Community partners also provide assistance. For example, the King County Green Schools Program provides assistance, educational resources and recognition for schools. Sustainability Ambassadors inspires students to initiate sustainability goals in their communities and measure performance along the way.
