We are proud to be a leader among international schools in environmental sustainability practices and we strive to involve students in being good stewards of the environment.
Students have the opportunity to study and lead conservation efforts through a wide variety of clubs and activities. Many of our recycling efforts are student driven, including replacing water bottles with cooled, filtered water throughout campus, and take-away plates and utensils made from an eco-friendly, corn based material. There are also 160 recycling containers on campus. SAS recycles plastic, metal, electronic waste, paper, and other materials.
As we renovate our world-class campus, we continue to work toward more indoor/outdoor connections that use fans instead of air conditioning, water-saving turf on fields, energy efficient lighting, the use of materials certified to be low in volatile organic compounds, and utilize wood from managed forests mixed with recycled content.
