At Alta Vista School, one of our core values is Sustainability.  We believe in the importance of fostering an environmental ethic in our students, an ethic that respects the earth and is conscious of our impact on the earth’s natural resources. 

We have partnered with Recology to create a system for waste that is conscious of separating our trash from our recycling from our compost.

AVS students and teachers compost their lunch waste into either our green bin or our worm bin.  Food scraps fed to the worms, turns into a rich, balanced and organic fertilizer that we put back into our school garden.
