The school won a $250,000 “green makeover” from the Ford Company in 2008 which enabled it to install recycled tire matting on its playground, new water saving devices, Marmoleum flooring, and new white boards made of 90% recycled products, and supported its certification as a LEED-EB SILVER school.
