Transforming Central High School:
water mgmt. & environmental education for an inner city school

Winner of the 2017 Sustainable St. Paul Award for Water Quality & Conservation

Transforming Central is a community effort to reshape the urban landscape of Central High School in order to improve students’ daily experience, address the environmental impacts of the campus, and connect with the vibrant community that embraces the school.

As a means to engaging the student body and stacking additional function into the project, EOR fostered interest in the ecological and hydrological facets of the project and built related monitoring & interpretive education opportunities into the project. This integration of curriculum into a high school campus is a first in the U.S. EOR also designed an outdoor classroom adjacent to the stormwater practices as a place for students to gather & learn.
