“A new high school in New Orleans is preparing students for careers in coastal protection and restoration, anticipating a future with ongoing climate change and sea level rise.
New Harmony High School opened in the fall of 2018 and currently serves about 100 south Louisiana students, including 14-year-old Mei Miller. She commutes 30 miles (50 kilometers) one-way from her home in Slidell, Louisiana, to attend New Harmony.
