Ontario​ EcoSchools is an environmental education and certification program for grades K-12 that helps school communities develop both ecological literacy and environmental practices to become environmentally responsible citizens and reduce the ecological footprint of schools. The program is focused on both student learning and school operations.

The 4 pillars of Ontario EcoSchools are:

  • ​Ecological Literacy
  • Energy Conservation
  • Waste Minimization
  • School Ground Greening​

   Ecoschool Certification Process:
Our goal is to obtain Gold Certification by June. We need to be able to provide evidence that we have reduced our energy consumption, minimized waste, greened school grounds and taught students and staff to be more ecologically literate.​
