Courtyard Greenhouse

The installation of a 10’ by 16’ greenhouse, in the flagstone section of the Middle School courtyard will provide a variety of authentic, real life educational experiences and learning possibilities for several courses and clubs.

Some uses include: Middle school science students will conduct a variety of hands-on student centered investigations based on scientific inquiry.  High school environmental students will use the greenhouse as a venue for ecosystem simulations and comparisons for plant growth under varied conditions.  Home Economic students cooking classes will benefit from the herbs and vegetables they will grow.  Special Education classes will be exposed to many life and career skills including managing a self-sustaining greenhouse based mini-business.
