Who We Are
WEA is a tuition-free hands-on learning environment in environmental sciences, including field trips, laboratory experiments, and working in the school's own greenhouse!
Wildwood Environmental Academy is a safe and secure free public community school offering a challenging academic program aligned with Common Core State Standards.
The academy is housed in two buildings on the same campus.
We have turtles, fish, lizards, a ferret, mice, bearded dragons, snakes, rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs, which the students enjoy working with and help to care for.
Our greenhouse is accessible to all students and environmental education is on staff to assist in the full integration of the environmental sciences.
The mission of Wildwood Environmental Academy is to develop personal, social, and academic potential of each student. We design programs that integrate Ohio Common Core, and Standards for Teaching and Learning with a broader consideration of environmental sciences to foster environmentally responsible citizens who work and volunteer in their community to make a difference.
Wildwood Environmental Academy is very proud of our environmental efforts both in and out of the classroom. The school is known for their ongoing environmental missions and the latest recognitions include:
WEA was recognized by Wild Ones with the "2015 Native School Landscape Award."
In the Spring of 2015 S.A.V.E. (Science Alliance for Valuing the Environment) awarded WEA as the "Eco School of the Year!"
WEA was the recipient of a generous donation of 50 solar panels from First Solar.
