Our middle schools are preparing students to enter the workplace of the future. Starting in the 2014-2015 school year, we launched an exciting curriculum called Project Lead the Way. (PLTW) Getting children excited about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) starts with showing them how subjects like math and science are relevant to their everyday lives. Through this hands-on, project-based learning, teachers can show students how the subjects they learn in school have applications in the real world.
Our elementary schools have many exciting programs that engage children and motivate them to learn, from live videoconference links to places around the world, to blended learning classrooms.
