Green All Over THE STAR SCHOOL K–8 | FLAGSTAFF
This charter near the Navajo Nation is the ﬁrst public school to be off the electric grid. Hundreds of solar panels and ﬁve wind turbines generate all the necessary power to run its multiple buildings (including one housing a state-of-the-art media program) as well as an electric well that waters the property’s orchards. Soon, a network of monitors will allow students to help maintain and learn from the system by tracking and graphing production and consumption. Named for the acronym “Service to All Relations,” the school’s philosophy is based on the
Navajo principles of K’e (all things are inextricably linked) and peacemaking, which promote respect for others and the land.
