Hotels near Academy for Environmental Leadership
Advanced Placement Environmental Science class takes place in our newly constructed NY Sunworks sponsored hydroponics lab (or green classroom).
We seek to empower students through rigorous instruction to become self-reliant/resilient, responsible leaders, caretakers of the Earth and others.
Students gain hands-on experience by preparing soil, composting, producing seedlings in our green classroom and studying food justice systems.
When students actively build on each other's ideas, ask questions and discuss, they intellectually engage in the work and their performance improves.
We will achieve this by incorporating the citywide instructional expectations and preparing rigorous lessons with the Common Core Standards in mind.
