Maryland Green Schools are part of a national and international community of sustainable green schools.  Students at these schools are becoming better stewards of the earth’s resources and developing a greater understanding of their own local environment.


The Maryland Green Schools program encourages educational opportunities for preK-12 schools that increase awareness and understanding of environmental relationships that impact public health and the local community. The program is aligned with Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement 2014 goals and supports Maryland State Department of Education graduation requirements and standards.


Over the past two to four years, these schools have demonstrated and documented a continuous effort to integrate sustainable environmental management practices, environmental education curriculum, professional development opportunities, and community engagement into our daily operations. This award signifies that the schools have made a commitment to developing stewards of the earth and reducing the environmental impact of the school.


Many of these schools will be sending representatives to the Maryland Green School Youth Summit at Sandy Point State Park on May 30, 2019, to receive their award.
