Committed to the environment

We are proud to be an Energy Star-certified school

Pennington Montessori is actively committed to providing our community with a healthy learning environment that minimizes its impact on the world-at-large. As a “green” School we go beyond using energy-efficient light bulbs and faucets, by incorporating concepts such as sustainability, conservancy and recycling into our everyday practices and teaching. We hope that our commitment to sustainability will impact not only our community, but also those that our children will inhabit and have the power to affect in the future.

In June 2011, Pennington Montessori was the first school in New Jersey (and 7th nationwide) to earn Silver LEED-EB certification awarded by the United States Green Building Council.  The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is the nationally accepted benchmark for green buildings.  We are proud to be an Energy Star-certified school and are committed to maintaining these strict standards going forward.
