Can student performance improve with the environment? Studies have shown that the educational environment can enable students to perform up to two grades better. Mark Miller, founder of Project FROG is constructing buildings that feature healthier educational environments; ones that better utilize natural daylight, manage glare and acoustics, and circulate fresh air. By being built with recycled materials, creating 80% less construction waste, and using a fraction of operating energy, they're also good for the environment.
