DoDEA Green Ribbon Schools

Green Ribbon Schools is a U.S. Department of Education program that recognizes schools that strive for 21st century excellence in three achievement areas:

  1. Reduced Environmental Impacts and Costs
  2. Improved Health and Wellness, and
  3. Effective Environmental and Sustainability Education.

Each year, schools recognized as Green Ribbon Schools are honored on Earth Day and are listed on the Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools website. In recent years, DoDEA has made tremendous gains in terms of facilities, nutrition and fitness, and in incorporating environmental and sustainability education into curriculum.
