Green Schools

Updated: Jan 11

We welcome student involvement! We have and will continue to partner with students, teachers, administrators, PTAs, LSCs, and parents. Groups we are currently in partnership with include:

  • Loyola’s incoming freshman - working on greening community projects

  • Senn High School students - volunteering on projects to receive credit for community actions

  • Loyola professors - included on community projects as part of the learning environment for students.

  • Community partners help supervise the process of specific environmental/sustainability projects

Many Edgewater schools would be considered 'green schools.' This title is defined by the schools' efforts to have robust recycling programs, improved lighting for energy efficiency and even special gardens or monarch habitats. The following Edgewater institutions are green schools:

  • Edgewater Schools

  • Senn High School

  • Steven K. Hayt Elementary

  • Goudy Elementary

  • Helen Peirce International Studies Elementary

  • LakeShore Schools

  • Sacred HeartSchools
