Green Ribbon Award Winner

Francis Scott Key Middle School has been selected as a recipient of the inaugural Green Ribbon School Award. The Silver Spring school is among a total of 78 winning schools from 29 states.

The Green Ribbon Schools award program, established in 2011, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and recognizes 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.

“This award is a reflection of our commitment to ensuring that all of our schools and facilities are environmentally friendly and foster healthy and productive learning environments,” said Joshua Starr, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) superintendent of schools. “Congratulations to the staff and students of Key Middle School on receiving this distinguished award.”
