Mission Statement

The study of natural systems reveals simple yet powerful concepts that help us understand human systems. An ecological framework goes beyond science: the study of nature includes human nature. Common Ground graduates students with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to live healthy, productive and sustainable lives. We do so through authentic learning that develops academic accomplishment, ecological literacy, strong character and commitment to community.

Description

Common Ground High School, a program of the New Haven Ecology Project, is the first Public Charter School with a focus on The Urban Environment. Common Ground High School (CGHS) is located on the New Haven Ecology Project's 20-acre farm at the base of West Rock Ridge in New Haven, CT. Common Ground offers a comprehensive high school curriculum to prepare students for college and future careers. Through hands-on inquiry, research and investigation, students will develop Academic Accomplishment, Ecological Literacy, Commitment to Community and Strong Character. Common Ground students contribute to the building and operating of NHEP's farm. Raising plants and animals, studying neighborhood, social and environmental issues, and investigating the dramatic ridge environment are part of the academic courses. At Common Ground, learning is a daily adventure.
