Missouri Green Schools helps schools set, achieve, and recognize environmental sustainability, health and learning goals.

Missouri Green Schools Partner Network

A variety of factors influence whether a school sets and achieves green goals, and MGS partners offer Missouri schools access to resources to help them do so. Whether it’s helping a school develop a culture that values outdoor and experiential education, providing STEAM subject area expertise, or assisting with funding for a green goal, MGS partners can help set the stage for a school’s success in a variety of ways.
