Hobe Sound Elementary was the first Martin County school to cross over into a Palm Beach based initiative, Green School. HSE has been a Green School since 2013. After HSE joined the program other schools in Martin County followed suit. Our school set the precedence for the Martin County Green Schools. The work we did in environmental education, energy conservation, wildlife management, and recycling has made an impact upon our students, staff, parents, and community. We are once again a recipient of the Green School Award in environmental education. We enjoy full and active support in this innovative school program.
Hobe Sound Elementary School is the first in the nation to be a fully certified Audubon Sanctuary Program. In conjunction with the Hobe Sound Nature Center, Hobe Sound Elementary School uses environmental education and conservation efforts in its quest for students to become environmental stewards.
