LHS - 2021 PLTW (Project Lead The Way) Distinguished High School

2020-2021 LHS PLTW Distinguished High School
Lancaster High School has received its official recognition as a 2020-21 PLTW - Project Lead The Way Distinguished School. We are one of just 204 high schools across the U.S. to receive this honor for providing broad access to transformative learning experiences for students through PLTW Biomedical Science, Engineering, & Computer Science. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in over 12,200 schools across the U.S.
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, LHS had to meet the following criteria in the 2019-20 school year:
1. Had 95 percent of students take the End-of-Course Assessments;
2. Over 33 percent of students who have been enrolled in a PLTW class took two or more PLTW courses;
3. Offer and had students enrolled in at least three PLTW courses;
4. Had strategies and procedures in place that support reasonably proportional representation with regard to race, ethnicity, poverty, gender and can support such claims with relevant data.
