The Environmental Academy of Research Technology and EartH Sciences (EARTHS) Magnet School for K-5 students, offers each student a challenging curriculum that is interwoven with environmental science and technology. We offer a diverse, content-rich, hands-on, engaging curriculum and provides students with unique opportunities through its integrated inquiry-based science curriculum, which utilize the Exploration Center and bio labs, as well as an innovative outdoor learning program.
EARTHS promotes learning as an integrated, interdisciplinary process rather than as a series of isolated subjects. The focus is on earth, life and physical sciences and technology, providing students with an opportunity to learn through active engagement and receive in-depth science exposure. By delving more deeply into subjects with a cross-curricular approach and using science and technology as a unifying theme for exploration, EARTHS helps students acquire the tools of inquiry and expression so that each student can construct a personally meaningful understanding of the world and become an imaginative, independent thinker. This approach, coupled with service learning opportunities, a strong presence of parents, through a minimum of three volunteer hours per month per family, and our community partners, creates an environment where students develop a capacity for service learning, cooperation, and responsibility.
