Twain and Lowell Named Green Schools!
Where are the greenest schools in America? Two of them are in Long Beach.
For the past five years, the U.S. Department of Education has been trying to "inspire" schools to reduce their environmental impact and costs, improve the health and wellness of students and staff, and teach environmental skills.
