Our Approach


THE GREEN CHARTER DIFFERENCE

We pair our level of personalized instruction with a global perspective, high-tech tools and practical applications in the classroom, encouraging students to reimagine solutions to the problems of tomorrow.

Every child who comes to GREEN Charter to learn already has greatness within them. We help each of them find it, refine it, and express it with a curriculum and approach designed to bring out the best in every student. Our focus on Engineering and Energy education teaches children proven problem-solving approaches that set the course for in-demand, real world careers—and rewards students for their dedicated interest in STEM subjects with individualized instruction from teachers that are passionate subject matter experts.

This is the GREEN Charter difference—one that challenges, empowers, inspires and equips students to be advocates of their own interests and impact on the world.

GREEN Our Teachers

OUR TEACHERS

Where proven expertise meets compassion and conviction.

The faculty, staff and leadership at GREEN Charter are of a caliber found at the nation’s most sought-after institutions. But they choose to be here. Why? Because they’re united by a genuine belief in our STEM approach-and sincere personal investment in seeing each and every student succeed.

Experts in their field, our staff and teachers don’t just follow the textbook; they actively pursue innovative new ideas and tools for learning. They listen as much as they teach. And meet students at their current achievement levels while focusing on individual student academic growth. The result is that families aren’t just “kept informed”—they’re kept at the center of every decision.

At GREEN Charter, we’re constantly investing in the personal and professional development of our instructors, because we care as much about the people shaping the next generation as we do about the students they guide. A brighter future for each child all starts with driven and empowered teachers.

PRIORITIZING VOICE & CHOICE THROUGH AUTONOMY & A CULTURE OF CARE

GREEN Charter schools utilize the N.E.E.D Project’s energy curriculum, which offers students a comprehensive and objective platform utilizing activities focused on the renewable and nonrenewable energy sources that fuel our country, including their economic and environmental impact. Through PLTW Launch, our students use structured approaches, such as the engineering design process, to employ critical thinking skills and solve problems. They apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, learning that it is OK to take risks and make mistakes. Students engage in rigorous and relevant experiences through activity-, project- and problem-based learning while using industry-leading technology.

The world needs leaders, advocates and visionaries more than ever, and the next generation of students need great teachers who can help them become just that. At GREEN Charter Schools, we’re committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in action through compassionate leadership and broad perspectives. We pair this intentional approach to teaching and communicating with STEM principles that highlight the value of thinking globally and solving problems in a responsible way to positively impact communities.
