At West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science, our goal is clear; to create an environment where children advance in learning because they learn through discovery.


ABOUT WMAES:

Wonder what it would be like to go snowshoeing through a maple forest? Or what it may be like to cook fresh homemade pizza in a mud oven? Students at WMAES don't wonder they know! We give our students 62-acres of an outdoor classroom to expand their love of learning. Working gardens, nature trails, forests, wetlands and prairies are all available for students to explore. WMAES students transition from desks to dirt, creating an environment for all students to learn.

Our students reap the additional benefits of programs and practices such as: STEAM programming, character education, accelerated learning, differentiated instruction and positive school culture all hallmarks of an effective charter school education.

#EnviroKids are creating a better tomorrow.
