In Diablo Magazine's current issue, the BHS Green Academy received the
following accolade:


Best School Within a School

Berkeley High Green Academy

It's become common for schools to incorporate sustainability into their
science programs, but at Berkeley High, an entire curriculum is built around
the idea of a greener future. The BHS Green Academy, one of six academic
programs within the school, aims to prepare students not only for college
but for careers in the sustainability industry. There are about 290 students
in the program, and much of the learning in is hands-on: When they learn
about wind power, they have a contest, building small-scale turbines; when
they learn about watersheds, they take a field trip to Strawberry Creek;
when they learn about green architecture, they take a walking tour of green
buildings in Berkeley, including the Brower Center. The program culminates
with students getting an internship or mentoring experience at companies
that include the Rising Sun Energy Center and AC Transit.
