Green School was conceived by its founders in 2006 following their exit from the Jewelry Business. The school opened in September 2008 with 90 students and a tailor made campus that had only recently emerged from the jungle and rice fields. Since then it has grown physically and in student numbers.
Green School combines the talent of several and very differently gifted individuals. Its founders, John and Cynthia Hardy, have been residents in Bali for more than 30 years and recognized a unique opportunity to create something truly inspiring and outside of the structural, conceptual, and physical limitations of many traditional schools.
Our vision is of a natural, holistic,student-centered learning environment that empowers and inspires our students to be creative, innovative, green leaders.
The Mission of Green School contributes to our Vision by educating young leaders in global citizenship. Our purpose is to champion a new model of learning that connects the timeless lessons from nature to a relevant and effective preparation for a fast-changing future.
We believe in three simple rules underlying every decision: be local; let your environment be your guide; and envisage how your grandchildren will be affected by your actions. The eight Green School iRespect Values that guide us are: Integrity; Responsibility;Empathy; Sustainability; Peace; Equality; Community; Trust.
