  • Focus on Students
Project Lead The Way recognizes two Five Star schools

Congratulations to Northglenn High School and STEM Launch for being named in Project Lead The Way's Distinguished Program Recognition. PLTW Distinguished Program Recognition celebrates districts and schools committed to helping students own their education by increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs. PLTW empowers millions of students across the U.S. to unlock their potential by developing the in-demand, real-world knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in life beyond the classroom.

Quote from Lori Egan, PLTW Site Coordinator at NHS: "The PLTW programs have helped our students to build the skills they need to be successful beyond high school. Whether that be college, military, trade schools, or the workforce. They have learned how to problem solve, think, collaborate, and communicate by solving real world problems. They have worked closely with industry partners and have explored the vast career possibilities available to them." 

Quote from Felicia Evans, PLTW Site Coordinator at STEM Launch: "We are immensely proud to have received the distinguished school award for our implementation of Project Lead the Way in grades 6-8. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to providing exceptional STEM education and preparing our students for the future. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students, and the entire school community. We are honored to be one of the two schools in Colorado to receive this prestigious distinction, and we will continue to empower our students with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in the ever-evolving world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics."

Northglenn High School is one of two high schools in Colorado that received "PLTW Distinguished High School" award this year.

STEM Launch is one of three schools in Colorado that received the "PLTW Distinguished Gateway" award this year.

This recognition means these schools are empowering students to thrive in an evolving world and achieving exemplary results from their PLTW programs.
