GreenWood Charter School takes a holistic approach to education, inspiring a healthy balance in life through healthy eating habits, excersice, personal discovery, service learning, and environmental stewardship. We took these ideas and distilled them into providing both a gymnasium and auditorium (rare in a charter school), classrooms organized around groves, and created an exterior that reflected their connection to the earth, implying shadows in a forest. The large butterfly roof over the main entrance, besides highlighting and connecting to Ben Lomond Peak in the distance, also serves to collect rain water.
