Driftwood Middle School Earns Prestigious Green Flag EcoSchool Award from National Wildlife Federation

Broward County Public Schools congratulates Driftwood Middle School for being designated a Green Flag EcoSchool by the National Wildlife Federation. The award, which is recognized internationally, honors schools that have achieved the highest level of environmental stewardship. Driftwood Middle is one of only 111 schools in the entire country and one of only five schools in Florida to earn this award. 


Driftwood Middle School is also now the first school in the District to reach this level of achievement. Previously, it has been named a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School and a Florida Green Apple School for its ongoing student focus on conservation and sustainability education. 

On Tuesday, December 18, 2018, a representative from the National Wildlife Federation presented the award to Driftwood Middle’s students, teachers and principal during a School Board special presentation.
