Since opening in 2004, Foundations’ has been committed to sustainable principles, and operating as environmentally responsible as possible. Things that may seem small have a large impact long-term. Through our commitment to sustainable principles, we’ve reduced our environmental impact through: solar power for our energy using real dishes instead of disposable dishes, saving tons of paper and plastic waste onsite gardening practices utilizing recycled and found materials for classroom projects weekly recycling school wide utilizing electronic communication vs. printed In 2013, Foundations’ was recognized as a “Cobb County Green School”. This initiative was designed to designate Cobb County schools that demonstrate a continued commitment to environmental education, conservation, preservation and beautification of our environment. To qualify as a “Green School”, our teachers plan and employ at least 5 environmentally friendly projects each year. In the summer of 2018, we began our second biggest project we have undertaken since the renovation of our Elementary & Gym building in 2011. During the renovation in 2011, we added 6 classroom spaces, a kitchen, an office, the rock wall, and redesigned the gym space.
