Connecticut Green LEAF Schools
Why should you "Green" your school?
Green schools create healthy, productive learning environments for students and teachers. Studies show that green schools raise student achievement and save money, while improving the health of students and staff.
Environmental education provides a focus for learning in all content areas and builds critical thinking skills.
- Students are more engaged and become empowered to make a difference in their school and community.
- Students gain essential skills that contribute to a vibrant economy and more sustainable communities.
