There are many great schools across the country doing great things for their students. One in particular, located in the heart of the most densely populated city, is one such school.
What makes this school unique is most of the learning takes place in a fully sustainable greenhouse located on the roof of the school. This type of classroom is the way of the future for learning, where kids learn by a variety of teaching techniques.
The parents and teachers of the Manhattan School for Children wanted to provide the students with an environmental focus on education, centered around the issues that they all face in their daily lives growing up in a big city.
Sidsel Robards and Manuela Zomora spearheaded the idea connecting with the New York Sun Works, a non-profit known for their innovative environmental work.
