Environmental Education

“Nature is our Best Teacher” is the motto at Learning Gate Community School and environmental education is at the heart of everything we do. Using a rigorous and relevant academic curriculum, teachers weave environmental studies into all grade levels and curriculum areas.

The Learning Gate model focuses not only on learning about the environment but also encourages the school’s surroundings and community as a framework within which students can construct their own learning. Guided by teachers and administrators using proven educational practices, they employ the environment as their comprehensive focus for learning in all areas: thinking and problem-solving skills, basic life skills, and understanding of the personal relationship to one’s community and natural surroundings.
