FDL High School's Project Lead the Way Now Accepting Applications
Fond du Lac High School offers students in Grades 9-12 the opportunity to participate in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program. This rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education curricular program used in elementary, middle, and high schools across the United States engages students in activities, projects, and problem-based learning, which provides hands-on classroom experiences. Students will create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems while applying what they learn in math and science. They are also exposed to STEM fields through professionals from local industries who supplement the real-world aspect of the curriculum through mentorships and workplace experiences.
