The Tomorrow River Community Charter School was one of four schools and a school district nominated by State Superintendent Tony Evers for the U.S. Department of Education’s Green Ribbon Schools program.
The award is intended to recognize schools taking a comprehensive approach to becoming more environmentally friendly.

The school is in the Central Wisconsin Environmental Station, a 200-acre teaching and learning center in Amherst Junction and affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources.
