High School




Middle School



The Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Gateway to Technology (GTT) program is taught at each middle school featuring a project-based curriculum designed to challenge and engage the natural curiosity and imagination of middle school students.  They envision, design and test their ideas with the same advanced modeling software used by companies like Lockheed Martin, Intel and Sprint.  They study mechanical and computer control systems; think robotics and animation.  Students also explore the importance of energy, including innovative ways to reduce, conserve and produce it using solar, thermal and wind power.  The knowledge that students gain and the skills they build from GTT create a strong foundation for further STEM Learning in high school and beyond.  Throughout GTT, students acquire knowledge and skills in problem solving, teamwork and innovation as well as explore STEM careers.  Courses currently taught in middle school are Automation and Robotics, Design and Modeling and Green Architecture.
