Warsaw Community Schools announced multiple elementary schools within the district have been recognized by Project Lead the Way as Distinguished Schools for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through PLTW Launch.

The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement and achievement in their PLTW programs. To be eligible for the designation, elementary schools had to offer at least two PLTW Launch modules at each grade level and have more than 75 percent of the student body participating during the 2017-18 school year, according to a news release from WCS.

“It is a great honor to recognize Warsaw’s elementary schools for their commitment to students,” said Vince Bertram, president and CEO of PLTW. “They are a model for what school should look like, and they should be very proud of ensuring students have the knowledge and skills to be career ready and successful on any career path they choose.”

Warsaw’s elementary schools are part of a community of pre-K through 12th-grade schools, colleges and universities, and corporate and philanthropic partners across the country united around a passion for providing students with inspiring, engaging and empowering learning opportunities.
