From classes focusing on the environment to our renowned Café, which serves regional, organic, seasonal, and sustainable food, Ross students learn to become aware of their natural surroundings. Conservation is woven into the curriculum as the School continues to change the way education meets the future.
Surrounded by acres of woodlands, farms, and coastal beaches, the Ross campus is the perfect natural laboratory for learning. Core classes and electives in ornithology, field ecology, entomology, marine science, green chemistry, and sustainability are supplemented by independent research, field trips, and service projects allowing students to explore and develop environmentally conscious practices.
Ross Lower School encourages sustainable living practices starting with Early Childhood classes, as students help care for the School’s organic vegetable garden. From planting seeds to harvesting crops, students connect with the land, learn about nutrition, and develop a lifelong commitment to protecting the environment.
