Munford Elementary - Teaching Nature's Way
Students scamper into Munford Elementary School each morning beneath a ceiling of stalactites, past rock-like walls. Their innocent laughter mingles with the sound of trickling water as they make their way down a pebbled path to their classrooms.

Cafeteria walls serve as murals for lush scenes of the nearby national forest, allowing the children "to have the illusion of having a picnic at lunch," principal Brooke Morgan says.
