Environmental Science Center
Alice and Erle Nye Family Environmental Science Center
Opened in the fall of 2009, the state-of-the-art LEED-certified Alice and Erle Nye Family Environmental Science Center offers laboratories, classrooms, and meeting space. With over 40 acres of land to explore, Lakehill students have the opportunity to experience nature in a pristine environment.
Students in Lower and Middle School visit the Alice and Erle Nye Family Environmental Science Center (ESC) approximately once a month. A comprehensive scope and sequence has been developed for the ESC for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The science curriculum for each grade is thematic and concepts introduced are built upon from one year to the next. Upper School students have the opportunity to utilize the ESC to conduct scientific studies through related course labwork.
