Head-Royce School once again has been acknowledged for its green initiatives. Diablo Magazine has voted Head-Royce as “Best in Show” for their Eco Awards, a feature that highlights East Bay schools that are training the next generation of eco-warriors.
“You don’t come to Head-Royce school if being green or environmentally sensitive isn’t one of your family’s core values,” says Debra Harper, a K–5 science resource teacher and chair of the school’s Green Council. “With the little kids, we emphasize personal choices—doing one thing to make a difference. With the Middle School kids, we can teach the core science and the core social issues that are at play with being environmentally sustainable. And in high school, we want our students to graduate entering a global world, and having the tools and the knowledge of environmental issues is just one part of that bigger picture of global citizenship.”
