Imagine this…

A campus which ignites the senses and the natural curiosity of children, a place where innovation, creativity and learning flourish.


A holistic green community with a strong educational mandate that seeks to inspire students to be more curious, more engaged and more passionate about the planet.



Bienvenido, mi casa es tu casa. 


Green School Tulum will stand strong at the heart of Selvazamá; a holistic residential project within the lush jungle of Tulum, only a couple of miles away from the Caribbean blue beaches.  


Our campus evolves from Tulum´s landscape, culture and style, while being  utterly new and exciting. It is forward-dreaming on our choice of materials and the techniques will nod to the history and local heritage, drawing inspiration from it and spiral into a new forward-focused vision.  Both local and international talent are thriving with the opportunity to give voice to the future of Tulum. 

Built out of low impact materials, the Green School Tulum will incorporate bamboo and locally sourced woods and materials, as well as permaculture principles into its operation and design. The school will be an extraordinary milestone for the local community and inspiration for other schools in Mexico and abroad.


School of NOW.

We offer a well-rounded and cross-disciplinary learning experience that encourages the physical, emotional, intellectual and expressive development of every child. Beyond teaching proficiency in Maths, Science, Humanities, English, Spanish and Mayan, we also provide experiential classes in entrepreneurial studies, environmental studies, arts, health and wellbeing. Most importantly, we celebrate the wonder and magic of learning.

The Green School Way.​

The Green School way of learning allows young people to thrive by learning in a purposeful manner.

Learning how to be a changemaker and have a positive impact on the world ignites children’s passion to learn and turns learning from a chore, into a desire.

We inspire and empower our students to be changemakers of the future and to thrive with purpose.

This is the Green School Way.

Green School Values.​

Our values inform our thoughts, words and actions. They are important because they help us to know ourselves, grow and develop. Our decisions are a reflection of our values and beliefs. 

Strong values enable us to take responsibility for our learning, have a positive impact on our community, and to show care for our environment. As a school we subscribe to a set of values:



Integrity, Responsibility, Empathy, Sustainability, Peace, Equity, Community, and Trust.

Latest news.

For more than twelve years, the Green School Way puts sustainability at its core and learners at Green School are taught to thrive with purpose and to become green leaders of tomorrow.

Earlier last year, the World Economic Forum recognized the relevance of our learning model in their “Schools of Future” report because of our duty to reinvent the traditional classroom approach and motivate our learners to develop an important connection to nature.

This pandemic that we are currently living is monumental in its relevance and will no doubt be remembered for decades to come. But these events just reiterate how important is it to take care of ourselves and our environment.

With the changing status of COVID-19 in México and the rest of the world, and new advice being issued on a regular basis, it’s has been a challenge for Green School Tulum to carry on with our timeline.

We ask that you understand that we are doing our very best under the circumstances as we continue to navigate this uncharted territory and act in accordance with the current standards from the Mexican Government in relation to COVID-19. We are taking the appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of members, our employees and the community.

Please rest assured that Green School Tulum is maintaining the goal to open by the end of 2021 with a reduced group of students and offering many activities for children and parents to get involved.

As much as things are shaken, Tulum has received so many emails, calls and support. We are very honored that you trust us as a provider of a safe space for your loved ones, as we face a new era… a new world. This is very moving and highly appreciated!

Our plan to open a Green School in Tulum is official, and we will be very happy to tell you more about it soon.

We are currently working on putting together all the information for our future Green School Community.


We invite you to stay tuned through social media and our website.


We will be announcing discovery tour dates and other events before 2021 ends. Due to COVID-19, we won’t have on site tours like be announced before, we apologize for this change.
