Celebrating Charter School Week 2023 with Dr. John Ochsner Discovery Health Sciences Academy

In our quest to continually spotlight innovative educational practices, we’ve just released a new video about the Dr. John Ochsner Discovery Health Sciences Academy. This charter school has found a unique way to teach its students not only about health sciences but also about sustainable nutrition and environmental stewardship.

One of the standout features of the Academy is its teaching kitchen, a space where culinary arts and health sciences blend together seamlessly. It’s here that students get hands-on experience with nutritious recipes, learning about the scientific, cultural, and health aspects of food.

But what sets this teaching kitchen apart is its direct link to the school’s onsite garden. Students get involved in every step of the food production process – from planting and nurturing crops, to harvesting, preparing, and enjoying the produce in their meals.

We invite you to watch this video and see how this charter school is changing the face of education. Be inspired, be amazed, and join us in celebrating the incredible work they are doing for #CharterSchoolWeek.
