Green School’s mission is to create a global community of learners, making our world sustainable.

Green School International

Bali, Indonesia
We strive to champion a new model of education that nurtures the whole child, giving them agency in their own lives and learning, so that they can thrive with purpose in our ever-changing world. Our ‘living’ curriculum educates for sustainability through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in a natural environment.
Introduction

We thrive with purpose

“Green School is a model we built for the world . ”

John & Cynthia Hardy, Green School Co-Founders

From our origins at Green School Bali, we have become a global movement in education, with schools opening in New Zealand, South Africa, and Tulum. Our ‘living’ curriculum educates for sustainability through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in a natural environment.

Green School was conceived in 2006 by life-long entrepreneurs, John and Cynthia Hardy. After years of homeschooling, they wanted their daughters to attend a school that they believed in. When John read Alan Wagstaff’s “Three Springs”, he was so inspired by the vision of a holistic learning community that he wanted to build it in Bali.

The catalyst came when John and Cynthia watched Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ – it compelled them to take up his call to action, and create a school that educates for sustainability.

In collaboration with master craftsmen, architects, permaculturist, academics and philosophers, Green School Bali opened in September 2008. Since then it has become a beacon for the future of education, with a growing community of Green Schools opening around the world.

Green School 

What do you want in a school? When you step onto a school campus, what do you want to see, hear, experience and feel? Imagine this, a school without walls, a campus which ignites the senses and the natural curiosity of children, a place where innovation, creativity and learning flourish, a community, which has come together from all corners of the globe to share new experiences, a place of joy.

Seeing children learning by doing, hearing deep and meaningful student discussions, experiencing daily growth as a whole person and feeling the joy of being part of a vibrant community of learners is the Green School experience.

Green School Way

We educate for sustainability, through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in a wall-less, natural environment. Our holistic, student-guided approach inspires and empowers us to be changemakers.

  • Integrity

  • Sustainability
  • Peace
