At Paramount Cottage Home we feel that teaching students to garden is teaching them how life works.

The goal of the environmental education program is to teach how natural environments function and how humans can connect to their environment in ways that create a more sustainable ecosystem. We want to increase our understanding on its interconnection and demonstrate how to connect and care for the world that sustains us.

An integral component of the Environmental Education curriculum is the Paramount School Farm. The farm provides hands-on visual learning for students and is an important tool for teachers. The environmental education team aims to introduce environmental topics and natural subject matter applicable to each grade level. Whether through gardening or through interacting with our goats, our students can see their classroom lessons played out in real life. Students have the opportunity to partake in various programs offered on our school farm.
