SGWS actively fosters naturalistic intelligence in its students, according to school officials. This intelligence, one of eight defined by Harvard educator Howard Gardner, is defined as being in tune with nature and able to explore the environment, find patterns and easily categorize differences. Science education is multi-disciplinary when approached through outdoor exploration, and opportunities to teach other subjects like math are also explored through tending rows of categorized plants.
