About
Green School Bali is a non-profit private Pre-K to Grade 12 school set in the heart of the Bali jungle in one of the most beautiful school campuses. A visit to Green School is a unique opportunity to see, feel and hear about one of the world’s most unique and progressive places of learning. From soaring bamboo structures, to the beautiful Ayung River, our paths through the jungle will take you to a place like no other. Our school is open daily (rain or shine) for guided tours and we welcome visitors from around the world. Suitable for all ages, although as our campus is intentionally rugged and the tour involves a short hike, we highly recommend comfortable shoes and bringing your own refillable water bottle (or you can get one from our Green School shop). All tour profits support our Local Scholars Program. “You have to visit Green School Bali to truly experience the uniqueness of such an inspiring, educational and architectural vision come to life”
Abiansemal, Indonesia

We visited and were left feeling that the Green School is a bright shining example of everything that is wrong with the 'green' movement.

This place is run like a fake green Disneyland charging for tours and filled with rich kids paying big bucks flown in (business class?) from other fake green bastions around the world such as California.

It's more like a summer camp than a school. So you learn how to plant an organic garden - whoopee - hardly saving the world considering the students will eventually return to 'the world' (by airplane), to make lots of money to buy the latest mobile phone, a new auto, use electricity, aircon, heating, live and work in concrete buildings etc...

There is also a Green Village next to the school where for around USD700,000 you can buy a house made of bamboo. 700k!!!! How long will a house made of bamboo last??? Bamboo is hardly going to save the world so what is the point?

But hey, if it makes people feel good about themselves then more power to the owners of the school.

The tour itself is great if you buy into the delusion that this is the way forward, but for me it was ridiculous and pointless.

We toured green school Bali on a Saturday morning and were so impressed. The vision that has come to life there is quite extraordinary. They have sustainable buildings, their own vege gardens, farm, environmentally friendly toilets, recycling and even their own water vortex to make power. Excellent initiative and worth touring to see what can be done.

I had been told about this tour by my mother (an Architect), so was prepared to be awed by the bamboo structures, which I was. What I was not so prepared for was to be immersed in the educational philosophy and see some of the student-led projects come to life. The BioBus is truly inspirational! What a great approach to education! If only more of the Balinese children could benefit!

My wife a retired school teacher always wants to come and visit. Your school is inspirational and enjoyable. Over the years we have made donations and gave had our names carved in the bamboo which is always fun to come and see. But back to the school and the tours. I have always been impressed with the tour guides. Some a little better than others. But when reading some of the negative reviews I got the impression there eyes and ears were closed and only wanted to find fault with the system. Sometimes I think people are just negative over all. My opinion the concept is beautiful and right on. When you have corporate sponsors providing support and people like Charles Bronson, Jane Goodall, Walter Mondale and many others supporting this school and its teaching methods it can't be all bad. If you come to Bali you should go to the Green School and take the tour. The best part I like is the proceeds from the tours goes to support scholarships for the local children and that is a good thing. One other point I failed to make was how much they do for the local community to encourage waste management, environmental issues and more. IT IS JUST A VERY GOOD PROGRAM AND EVERYONE SHOULD INVEST IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

We have great experience there, everything is natural. Most of building made from bamboo, very fresh environment because trees and grass everywhere. A tour guide named Morten lead us walk around school, he was fun and friendly. Students have their own projects like bio-fuel, composting, animal breeding, etc. Every tour fee and product purchase will be donate to school funding. If you donate more than $100, you can carve your name on bamboo wall in the middle of school.

If you're interested in education or architecture or sustainability you're going to love this tour! Our guide, Kate, was incredibly friendly and helpful and her passion and enthusiasm for the Green School ethos came across in abundance. It was a fascinating tour and I learnt so much. We only had time to do the general 1 hour tour but if you've got more time to spend here I would heartily recommend it. The cost of the tour funds scholarship funds for local children which I was really impressed with. As a teacher, I was particularly interested in their thematic and skills based curriculum and came away feeling invigorated with lots of ideas. The campus itself is beautiful so even if you're not a teacher I still think you would really enjoy this tour. At the end you can indulge in delicious coffee and there's a gift shop too. Enjoy!

I got a little bit skeptical about the school concept but I was wrong.

Dunia bergerak semakin cepat, begitu juga dengan dunia pendidikan yang menuntut anak-anak belajar banyak hal dalam waktu singkat, mengingatnya, dan mengikuti banyak ujian, namun pada akhirnya semua hal yang mereka pelajari terlupakan.

Green School take the children to not only preparing themselves for an exam, but also prepare them to be a human and a lifetime learners.

Would I like my children to attend a school like this? Absolutely. Will it be Green School Bali. Maybe one day.

Anyway, the tour is a real inspiring adventure for any parent or teacher. You gain lots of insights to the design of the school, how it works and why it’s so different than other schools. Although to be fair, school systems around the world are finally changing.

Well worth a visit and the donation you pay for the visit goes to a good cause!
