ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Students at Northeast College Preparatory High School broke ground on a different kind of classroom on Saturday.

The new outdoor classroom came about after students say they approached staff and faculty about an idea where they could expand and improve their school environment by using nature.

They say this would improve both their academic and social-emotional learning. 

The project will include up to 20 picnic tables, a performance and yoga platform, a learning classroom, and a full garden.
