DOH organizes existing environmental education materials and programs into a structured, comprehensive format and provides pre-planned lessons that guide the teacher throughout the scholastic year. The teacher can manipulate this program so that it conforms with his/her pre-existing lesson plans and projects.
 
DOH allows educators to teach basic and traditional subjects-history, science,
geography, mathematics, and the language arts-in a sound, balanced curriculum with a priority aim of improving student academic performance.
 
DOH emphasizes experiential learning, direct student involvement and the study of
real issues in the community to develop "real-world" problem-solving skills. In
addition,
a strong component of the program is the close active collaboration between the school,
parents, and the community at large which facilitates a higher acceptance of the program.
