School Info:
Founded in 2006, Bronx Green Middle School was the first middle school in the city to have a garden that was incorporated into the school's curriculum. Through Field Study classes, students learned how to properly care for a garden and use its proceeds in everyday life. 

Continuing that tradition, Bronx Green has evolved in its "green" ways by making a concerted effort to move away from paper waste.  In addition to helping the school become more eco-friendly, the push has also involved incorporating a significant amount of technology in classrooms and school.  These new innovations both prepare our students for the world ahead by making them technology savvy, and allow for innovative and creative teaching/learning methods.
