Hubble Middle School is one of the first middle schools to achieve LEED for Schools Gold certification. Hubble, at three-quarters the size of the energy-guzzling school it replaced, reduced annual utility costs by 17 cents per square foot. The school supports the curriculum with sustainable features such as learning gardens, outdoor studios, a green roof, and a surrounding detention area/wetlands that is visible from half of the classrooms.
