Christ Episcopal School
A co-ed independent Episcopal School serving students in preschool - grade 8 in historic Rockville, MD

Green School

 

Christ Episcopal School was the first independent school in Montgomery County, Maryland to be named a Green School by the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education. Today, CES continues to be a “Green Leader” among schools in the state. Recently, CES was presented with the 2012 Excellence in Recycling Award by the Montgomery County, Maryland Division of Solid Waste Services.  In addition, CES has expanded its outreach throughout the greater Washington area community through a partnership with the renewable energy provider, Clean Currents, in an effort to encourage households to switch to wind power. CES was also a co-sponsor of the showing of the film Cape Spin at the 2012 DC Environmental Film Festival.

The school’s administration and faculty have successfully built a curriculum that develops students as good stewards of the environment.  The children enjoy getting dirty and exploring in the CES outdoor classroom and garden.  The garden is a way for children to discover life and connect with nature.
