Tamarack Waldorf School in Milwaukee has been nominated by the state of Wisconsin to be honored as a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School.

The Green Ribbon program is awarded to schools that have made progress in three key areas: reducing environmental impacts and costs, improving health and wellness and increasing environmental literacy.

Waldorf schools honored by the program in previous years include:

  • City of Lakes Waldorf School, Minneapolis, MN
  • Maple Village Waldorf School, Long Beach, CA
  • Portland Waldorf School, Portland OR
  • Urban Prairie Waldorf School, Chicago, IL

Tamarack was nominated following its "Sugar Maple School" designation, the highest rank possible, under the Green and Healthy Schools Wisconsin program. Schools achieving this level are then considered for national recognition.
