SOUTH FORSYTH HIGH SCHOOL RECEIVES THE “GREEN SCHOOL AWARD”

South Forsyth High School, under the stewardship of Chris Webb, received the Keep Forsyth County Beautiful “Green School Award.”  The program is designed to enhance environmental education and stewardship within Forsyth County Schools.

To be considered for the award, the school must have an active aluminum, paper, and cardboard recycling program.  In addition, the school must have a student organization that actively participates in the county held cleanup and recycling events throughout the year.  These events include The Great American Cleanup, Shore Sweep, Georgia Adopt-A-Street, Electronics and Paint Recycling and Christmas Tree recycling.  An outdoor classroom and active nature trail are also a must.  Mr. Webb’s students have been involved with Keep Forsyth County Beautiful for 10 years.  The program interconnects well with the AP Environmental Science course curriculum and allows Mr. Webb to give his students a hands-on element to the in class environmental concepts learned throughout the year.  We are proud to say that Chris Webb has won this award for the past several years!

South Forsyth High School offers its students an exceptional academic curriculum, a robust athletics program and a wide-range of extracurricular opportunities.  SFHS is recognized as one of American’s Best High Schools by Newsweek and The Washington Post and has been named a Georgia School of Excellence, a Georgia Governor’s Distinguished Achievement Award Recipient, A Georgia Advanced Placement Merit School, A German PASCH school, and a Georgia Advanced Placement STEM and STEM Merit School.
