All EAS students participate in three blocks of Community Stewardship Projects (CSP) during the school year. A variety of projects provides students with opportunities for active involvement in both environmental and social stewardship in their community. CSPs involve both hands-on learning and extensive research. Following each session, CSP groups present what they have learned and accomplished to the rest of the school. By the end of their 8th grade year, students have completed over 140 hours of community stewardship. Partnerships with individuals and community organizations provide EAS students, staff and parents with expertise, training and support for various projects. CSP also provides EAS students many opportunities to teach and guide others, as well as opportunities to work in partnership with adult mentors and community organizers. Both environmental and social program opportunities are offered each stewardship session.
