New York, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2011
Equipping the youth with the skills that are necessary for success is the basic intent of the ordinary education system, but empowering the youth as the future leaders and entrepreneurs is the intent of up and coming charter school known as The Staten Island Green Charter School for Environmental Discovery. This new charter school located in Staten Island has taken the approach of transforming ordinary education into a system of learning that will benefit students now and more importantly in the future.
The Staten Island Green Charter School for Environmental Discovery (SIGCSED) is proposing a new approach to learning that incorporates the key factors of the environmental movement with the primary elements of preparatory education. The benefits to this new curriculum lie deep within the meaning behind the overall environmental movement, and that is preparing the younger generation with the knowledge of environmental preservation in order to protect the economics and culture of their society for future generations. The intent of the Staten Island Green Charter School for Environmental Discovery is to provide students K-8 with this knowledge through an exploratory community-based learning system that will advocate a healthy approach to an everyday lifestyle. Not only is the SIGCSED focusing on nurturing the youth in an environmental education system, but the school is also reaching out to the parents and guardians of all the students; each individual parent and guardian will be given the opportunity to learn the basics of environmental living from instructional programs at the school.
Irene Santoro, LEED AP BD&C, founder and president of Excel Design & Construction Inc., Charles Anthony Interior, LCC. and Forever Green Training & Sustainable Design will be heading the selection and development of the green based curriculum for the Staten Island Green Charter School. Ms. Santoro understands the importance of creating a holistic approach to environmental learning methods, and strives to encourage the community to enroll their children in an education program, such as SIGCSED, in order to further their knowledge base surrounding environmental issues that will impact the youth in the years to come.
