Penn High School named Project Lead the Way Distinguished School
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Penn High School Assistant Principal Rachel Fry recently announced the high school’s designation as a Project Lead the Way Distinguished School. Penn joins Brownsburg, Noblesville, Westfield and Homestead in the ranks of Indiana schools to receive this status.
PLTW is a nonprofit program that develops STEM education in American schools through real-world applications and problem-solving applications.
To achieve the PLTW Distinguished School status, schools must meet a number of requirements including offering PLTW courses, having 25-percent or more students participate in PLTW courses and having at least 70-percent of students earn a Proficient or higher on an End-of-Course Assessment.
Penn offers PLTW curriculum through 10 different courses, with 22 student sections having participated in these courses in the current school year.
“I am extremely proud that Penn High School has been recognized as a PLTW Distinguished School, evidencing that we prioritize quality curriculum in our classrooms,” Fry said.
