West High School PLTW

Welcome to the home page for West High School Project Lead the Way team.  At West High School, we offer course work in all three pathways: Biomedical Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering.  We currently offer Principles of Biomedical Science, Human Body Systems, Computer Science Essentials, Introduction to Engineering Design, and Civil Engineering and Architecture.  We will add Medical Interventions, Computer Science Principles and Aerospace Engineering in the 2018-2019 school year.
Project Lead The Way uses an innovative approach of activity, problem and project based learning to excite students about STEM careers.  This approach scaffolds student learning while achieving the desired outcome of confident, independent problem solvers.  We have a fully equipped STEM lab that our PLTW classes can utilize, and classes are often seen working in the lab together.
We are excited about what is happening in our classrooms and look forward to our students being competitive in the collegiate and global environment.  It is truly a great time to be a Trojan!
