VIDEO: EdWatch: St. Andrew's nationally honored for going green

A Middletown private school is the only school in Delaware to get a U.S. Green Ribbon.

WDEL's Amy Cherry has more in this week's WDEL Delaware EducationWatch.

St. Andrew's School in Middletown is named of the greenest schools in the country.

Diana Burk is the school's director of sustainability--a position many schools in the state don't even have, tells WDEL about their green energy efforts.

Some of the food students eat is also grown right there on campus--in the organic garden.

The school also has a brand new, gold-LEED certified athletic center.

That's Alexandra Porrazzo, an Environmental Steward on campus, who says the picturesque historic campus is also looking at adding solar panels to some older buildings.

She says winning a U.S. Green Ribbon is a great honor, but the effort to go green never ends.
