arrow pointer Maryland Green Ribbon Schools

The Green Ribbon Schools award is given to select schools across the nation that The U.S. Department of Education (USED) recognizes as schools that save energy, reduce costs, feature environmentally sustainable learning spaces, protect health, foster wellness, and offer environmental education to boost academic achievement and community engagement.

Inspiring schools to achieve 21st Century excellence, the Green Ribbon Schools award will recognize schools that have achieved, or are making demonstrable progress toward:

  1. having a net-zero environmental impact;
  2. improving the health and performance of students and staff; and,
  3. ensuring the environmental and sustainability literacy of all the students


The Center for Green Schools was established to drive the transformation of all schools into sustainable and healthy places to live, learn, work and play. We believe that everyone, from the kindergartner entering the classroom to the Ph.D. student performing research in a lab, should have the ability to learn in green buildings.
