Creating great stewards of our next generation – Arabia Mountain High School
Arabia Mountain High School (AMHS) is the first public school in the state of Georgia to achieve LEED Certification, obtaining the Silver Certification. AMHS hosts the Dekalb County School System’s Environmental Energy and Engineering Program, and has used the Environment as an Integrated Context (EIC) model to improve student achievement by using the local natural and community surroundings as a context for learning. The EIC model provides students with a more hands-on experience and allows them to gain a better understanding of the connections between the subjects they study in school and the world outside their school walls. Each grade level is assigned a year-long inquiry question around which all of their studies focus. Arabia Mountain High School students, teachers, administrators, and parents go above and beyond to connect to their environment and make great stewards of our next generation.
