Academic Facilities

List of 9 items.

  • Art Galleries & Assembly Halls

    Our campus has multiple art galleries throughout campus to showcase student, as well as faculty and alumni works of art. Our growing sculpture program also features outdoor art installations. Panther Hall, our main assembly hall and performance space, is home to our largest Gallery and to special event receptions.
  • Community Garden

    Established on Earth Day 2014, Ranney School's Community Garden provides a place for students to experience hands-on science. More than 20 plants, vegetables, and herbs are planted and harvested by students each year, many of them used to create a "spring salad" that students create and eat. The garden is also used for cross-divisional, interdisciplinary projects, such as harvesting flowers that can be turned into dye as part of science class and then used in art class. Parent and student volunteers help to maintain the garden year-round, and donate pounds of harvested food to local food banks. Learn more.

Ranney School is a member of the United States Green Building Council, and sustaining our school through financial responsibility is a top priority (see our Strategic Vision). This goal includes enhancing our green initiatives and reducing expenses without compromising our mission. 

Our Operations team has implemented several green initiatives across our 60-acre campus that not only promote and support campus sustainability but that also result in substantial savings in operating costs. For example, our dining halls use all washable china and flatware, thus reducing trash; a water well has been installed in our athletic field irrigation systems, reducing our domestic water usage; and both internal and external lighting across campus has been replaced with high efficiency lighting and new HVAC units have been installed, reducing our total energy use. We have been able to make many of these upgrades at a significant reduction in cost to the school by obtaining grants from State of New Jersey incentives.

We welcome the ideas of the Ranney community for more ways we can impact our campus and our community environment. Email

See where more sustainable footprints can be found across campus in the highlights below. 

  • Both campus dining halls use all washable china and flatware
  • Catering events on campus use only green materials
  • Filtered water fountains exist throughout campus
  • All hot and cold cups and napkins are biodegradable 
  • Food, garbage and biodegradable scrap are recycled 
  • All disposables are made of paper
  • Water coolers are accompanied by biodegradable cold cups.  

  • Internal and external lighting uses high efficiency lighting and lighting controls
  • More than 1,500 light motion sensors exist in classrooms, offices, hallways, restrooms and meeting rooms. This motion sensor light technology is expected to eliminate total energy use across campus by 15% (installed summer 2015)

  • 10 energy efficient HVAC pieces reside in the Academic Complexes as well as in the Margaret Mahon and Annex Buildings
  • Building automation systems will soon save the school approximately 15% in equipment operating costs and reduce wasted energy by maintaining “measured comfort.”  
  • A new energy efficient pool filter saves energy and water
  • A water well installed in our athletic field irrigation system reduces domestic water usage
  • Low-flow aerators exist on all faucets 

  • Toner and ink cartridges are recycled by Funding Factory. The school also collects cartridges from families who may wish to donate them from their homes or businesses. The recycling program benefits the school, the local community and the environment. For more info, please email Dede Joseph in Operations.
