Placeholder Image
NEW GLARUS - New Glarus High School has received national certification for its Project Lead The Way program that has been offered since 2007. This is the second time the school has gone through the national certification process to validate its program.

As part of the recognition process, Jeff Eichelkraut, principal of New Glarus High School, and a team composed of teachers, staff, students and members of the community submitted a self-assessment of the school's implementation of PLTW's engineering program. A site visit by a PLTW-trained team followed. PLTW's team met with teachers, school administrators, counselors, students and members of the school's Partnership Team. A PLTW school's Partnership Team is comprised of teachers, counselors, administrators, post-secondary representatives, business and industry professionals and other community members who actively support the PLTW program within a school.

PLTW offers a rigorous curriculum that allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science class to real-life activities, projects and problems. It has more than 50 college, university and research partners, including Milwaukee School of Engineering.
