Sustainability

Sustainability is not only a global issue but one that is an important part of a Thaden education.

At Thaden, the first part of our mission states that a well-balanced curriculum empowers students to think ethically, critically, and creatively about global issues and their local manifestations. Sustainability is not only a global issue but one that is an important part of a Thaden education.

We have woven reclaimed materials and structures into the fabric of the school, beginning with the historic home of Louise Thaden. Sustainable spaces have also been created for teaching, gathering, and celebrating; agricultural landscapes for eating, feeding, and cooperative work; and natural landscapes and corridors to provide ecosystem services and exposure to natural processes.
