Historia

The school was founded by John and Cynthia Hardy in September 2008 with 98 students, with a mission to provide children with an holistic education with sustainability at its core. The Hardys reportedly conceived of Green School in 2006 after reading Alan Wagstaff’s Three Springs concept document for an educational village community. By 2010, The School had 245 students aged 3–16,[4] and 2011 enrollment was over 300. Most of its students are foreigners with Indonesians making up only 20% of the intake, and most of them are on scholarships.

Ecological Design The school's 75+ buildings are cooled and powered by renewable energy sources including micro-hydro power, from a “hydroelectric vortex”, solar power, and bio-diesel. The school’s campus is designed on an “organic permaculture system” intended to work with the natural ecology of the land, and the school’s students cultivate an organic garden as part of their school activities. The school’s buildings are built primarily from renewable resources including bamboo, local grass, and traditional mud walls. The primarily-Bamboo construction of the campus has also been reported upon as an example of large-scale building potential of bamboo architecture, including “The Heart of the School” a 60 Meter long stilt-structure constructed with 2500 bamboo poles. The school also utilizes renewable building materials for its other needs, and “everything - even the desks - is made of bamboo.” Curriculum The school reportedly "prepares students to be stewards of the environment, teaching them to be critical and creative thinkers, who champion the sustainability of the world and the environment." Ecological sustainability is a mainstay of its curriculum. Subjects taught there include English, mathematics and science, including ecology, the environment and sustainability, as well as the creative arts. Courses at the school include Global Perspectives, Environmental Management, and 21st Century Science. The curriculum combines standard International Baccalaureate programs with green studies such as carbon-footprint analysis and organic farming. For example, sixth-graders calculate the school's annual carbon footprint, then plant bamboo to offset it.
