    The Environmental Academy for Research Technology of EARTH Sciences (EARThS) is dedicated to helping students acquire the tools of inquiry and expression by delving deeply into subjects with a cross-curricular approach, using earth sciences and technology as a unifying theme for exploration.

    All of our students participate in a multi-grade CCSS and Education Environment Initiative aligned outdoor education program designed to increase student awareness of the world around them and cultivate understanding and care about environmental issues.

    A unique partnership with the National Park Service led to the development of our fourth/fifth grade SHRUBS (Students Helping Restore Unique BiomeS), second/third grade SPROUTS (Students Practicing Research Outdoors Using Technology and Science), and kindergarten/first grade SEEDS (Students Experiencing the Environment by Doing Science) programs.

    Service learning is a major component of EARTHS. Student service projects include restoration, signage, habitat awareness, and litter control.
