Wellness

Greenhouse
Our hydroponic greenhouse, supported by NY Sunworks, Urban Advantage, and The Greenhouse Project, uses sustainable local food production to teach science, natural resource management, food production and nutrition. The food grown in our greenhouse supplements our cafeteria produce!





Nutrition
Our Wellness in the Schools culinary school graduate supports our kitchen staff and educates our community about using whole foods. Meanwhile our WITS fitness coach provided two additional hours of physical education to students each day during year one of our partnership; in year two our physical education teacher will take on this task of making recess a structured and intentional time for physical activity and movement.



Fitness
We participate in Bike to School Day in conjunction with Bike NY and the NYC DOT.
