Green School

Wellwood International is a Maryland Certified Green School. We are working to make a change in the environment and bring awareness to others on the importance of going green. Each grade level participates in a green school project each year. Wellwood is one of three BCPS schools participating in a composting pilot for the 2019-2020 school year.

Wellwood is proud to be one of three schools in BCPS piloting a composting program. The Wellwood School community has worked to continuously reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill each year.  We have composted 5,250 pounds since the beginning of the school year.
