Dr. David Suzuki Public School, located at 6320 Raymond Ave. in East Windsor, is the first LEED platinum school building in Canada and will is highly recognized as a demonstration project, intended to provide information and inspiration for future eco-friendly building initiatives throughout Canada and beyond.

The school, which opened to students earlier this month, contains 20 proven carbon-footprint reducing technologies that make it Canada’s most environmentally friendly school.
