Upon entering the school grounds, students and parents are instantly immersed in the school’s uplifting environment. A rammed earth wall lines the entry way, and students find their school streets highlighted by 100 year old recycled Redwood trees. The uniquely-designed classrooms are flooded with natural light, and complemented with energy-efficient LED lights.

In addition to pushing half of the learning experience outside, Trilogy maintained the interior/exterior connection by making the walls nearly transparent. Finally, the entire school has received an earth-friendly paint job so that it does not contrast too much with the dramatic natural environment in which it has been built.

Now this is the kind of school we want for our kids… how about you?
