The School of Environmental Studies Education Foundation (SESEF) was established in 1999 by a group of parents, teachers, alumni, and community members to encourage high academic standards, experiential learning, and excellence in teaching at SES.  The Foundation does this through targeted funding of activities not covered by the district:

  • Grants to teachers for course, curriculum & professional development

  • Direct funding to disadvantaged students for course expenses and intensive theme opportunities

  • College scholarships for SES graduates

The Mission of the School of Environmental Studies Education Foundation is to develop active citizen leaders who are:

  • environmentally informed

  • self-perpetuating learners

  • connected to the local and global community

If SES has made a difference in your life, we hope you’ll consider donating today, so in future years, the Foundation can continue to develop active citizen leaders who are environmentally informed, self-perpetuating learners, and connected to the local and global community.

"This school is amazing!  I have loved the time that my son has spent here and so proud of him for making the decision to attend.  It has helped him in communication skills, leadership, personal goal setting, and understanding himself and community in a way that he would never have anywhere else.  Thank you SES staff!!!"  (Parent)

 “My experiences at SES were life-changing and world-expanding; I carry them with me always.” (Student)

"What a unique and a powerful experience! I had three girls go through this school and the inductive learning environment is unique and a powerful lifelong experience that will put them ahead of those who have only read about what they did." (Parent) 

 “Thank you so much for all you did for me back at SES! I wouldn't even have gone to college if it weren't for you, and now I'm working on my Master's degree in Resource Management.”  (Student)

"SES did an amazing job at preparing me for college, graduate school and the real world. I feel that I perform above average in essay and research paper writing, have valuable time management skills and can read and analyze a book at the level of most of my college professors. Most of the teachers at this school are above average and put their personal time into helping students reach their full potential. The respect that the students and teachers share is incredible. I would not be the person I am today without SES."  (Student)

We can't rave enough about SES. This school rocks! Our daughter joined this year and is immersed in an amazing learning environment. Don't be fooled by the name - yes, the curriculum does weave in environmental themes, but there's a heavy, heavy focus on academics, science, math, the arts, as well as the skills needed for college work ethic. Great place - check out the SES website. (Parent)
