The Green School was established side-by-side with the non-profit Meranggi Foundation, which develops bamboo  plantations by presenting seedlings to local rice farmers. The project also harnessed the talents of PT Bambu , an architecture firm specializing in bamboo architecture. PT Bambu is responsible for the bamboo portion of the Green School’s campus, which consists of four classrooms, a drop-off center, faculty housing, offices, cafes, bathrooms, a gym, and the Heart of the School, a spiraling, multi-story building for school functions.
Along with the beautiful bamboo construction, the eco-school’s  curriculum focuses on sustainability and offers many scholarships to local Balinese children. The campus also includes an organic garden and utilizes a number of renewable energy systems , including a bamboo sawdust hot water and cooking system, a hydro-powered vortex generator, and solar panels. Local sustainably-grown bamboo was used exclusively throughout the beautiful campus.
