Environmental Studies

Students PK-12 study the environment and climate change in San Francisco.

We offer students environmental studies across the PK-12 experience in SFUSD.

Our Neighborhood Nature video series is for preschool and early elementary students. In K-5, students learn about earth's climate in their spring semester Amplify Science units. The SFUSD Environmental Science Center provides outdoor field studies for middle and upper elementary students. In grades 6-8, students engage with climate science in project-based learning found here. Throughout high school in NGSS Biology or Physics, and with a spring semester of climate and Chemistry, the SFUSD NGSS Core Curriculum sequence engages students with relevant learning in the causes and effects of climate change, study of the methods to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and deeper opportunity for environmental study.
