Sustainability at Sunstone

Premier Green School

At Sunstone Montessori School, stewardship for the earth is central to our everyday life. Being environmentally conscious is the culture of our community, in our classroom conversations, our daily lessons, the materials we use, the products we consume, our relationship with others and our place on the planet.

We have been awarded several professional certifications that we work diligently to maintain and uphold, including Premier status with Oregon Green Schools. These certifications were achieved with the support of dedicated parents, students and staff. We also participate in the Portland Eco-School Network and are a member of the National Wildlife Federation Eco-School USA program. We are passionate about maintaining our sustainable practices as well as discovering new ways to be agents of change and environmental stewards for our communities.
