Going, Going Green! - Group of Folger Students
Folger is committed to environmental education and developing its students into stewards, aware of and dedicated to taking responsibility for the world in which they live.  Regular use of the outdoors as a platform for learning, both on the school campus and through diverse field trips, it’s no surprise that Folger has been certified as a Maryland Sustainable Green School, having attained state Green School distinctions in 2006, 2009, 2013, and 2017.  Additionally, Folger was recognized as a National Green Ribbon School in 2011, the inaugural year for this prestigious award, deeming Folger among the best in the country in terms of environmental education and commitment.
