MarinSEL’s curriculum combines themes of environmental stewardship, global awareness, community service, innovative thinking, and group projects to create a uniquely challenging and rewarding educational experience for its students. MarinSEL courses have core environmental focuses that guide the content of the Humanities (Language Arts and Social Science), and Environmental Leadership Seminar courses. Even biology, which closely follows the traditional curriculum, is integrated into MarinSEL’s unique curriculum through projects and Environmental Leadership Seminar discussions. In all of the courses, teachers guide students through inquiry-based projects where they apply theories from multiple disciplines to address real world environmental and social issues in the community. Through this process, students gain a sense of interconnectedness between themselves, their community, and the earth.

Leadership and Environmental Action Development (LEAD) Projects are a Seminar project focusing on environmental issues in the community. Read more about these projects and see what the students have accomplished, below.
