Inside an environmental science school

At an environmental science school, students learn inside the classroom and outside in nature. See how C.A. Frost Environmental Science Academy, a K-11 school in Grand Rapids, MI, incorporates environmental science into kids’ daily lives.

This video is part of our Cool School Models series, which features seven new and emerging school models. Across the country, some standout schools have thrown out the old playbook and created something totally new. Kids tend to love these schools, as do the educators who work there, which makes for creative, innovative learning environments where kids grow and thrive. Check out the other six emerging school models (project-based learning; language immersion; high expectations, high support; Montessori; place-based learning; and performance-based learning) to get a glimpse of what’s possible — and then look for schools like these near you.
