The Green School In Bali

John Hardy and his wife Cynthia have lived in Bali for 30 years and in 2008 they established the Green School. The Green School provides a holistic international curriculum for students from preschool and kindergarten through year eight.

The Green School is also about to add International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation to its degree programs. The IB Diploma is a two year Program designed to prepare students, normally aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond.

The Green School strives to develop lifelong moral and intellectual growth. The Green School educates their students for the 21st century, including weaving environmental concerns into their philosophy and daily lives. They foster innovative and entrepreneurial learning, connected to environmental responsibility, and a deep respect for science, self and cultural diversity. The school’s original faculty and student body came from 16 countries around the world.

The school itself is a sustainable structure made of bamboo, mud, and local grass. The Green School has its own farm, a bicycling program, solar power, and an organic chocolate factory. It is located on the eight-hectare Kul-Kul Campus on the Ayung River in Sibang Kaja, Bali.

The Green School is developing green curriculums as well as green enterprises which are providing students with more exposure to the economy of environmental stewardship.
