From classes focusing on environmental sustainability, to serving regional, organic, seasonal, and sustainable meals in the renowned Ross Café, to teaching about the history of cultures that have come and gone throughout the ages, Ross School is dedicated to preserving and protecting our planet and its inhabitants. Conservation is woven into the curriculum, and issues of sustainability are addressed in all domains and at all grade levels.
Surrounded by acres of woodlands, farms, and coastal beaches, the Ross campuses are a perfect natural learning laboratory. Core classes and electives take advantage of the site by supplementing lessons with independent research, field trips, and service projects. Organic gardens on both campuses are supported and maintained in part by students, who also learn from an early age about how humans throughout history have connected with the land. The Ross curriculum emphasizes responsible cultural and environmental stewardship, fostering a lifelong commitment to sustainability that students embrace and share as they go out into the world.
