Jackson Hole High School has received national certification for the “Project Lead the Way” program that it has been offering since 2008. “Project Lead the Way” is a non-profit organization and the nation’s leading provider of science, technology, engineering, and math education that offers a rigorous curriculum that allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science class to real-life engineering and technology projects. As such, “Project Lead the Way” is providing students with a foundation and proven path to college and career success in these areas and to fill the high-tech, high-skill jobs of the 21st century.  The primary purposes of the certification program are to recognize schools that have successfully demonstrated a commitment to the quality national standards of the “Pathway to Engineering” program and to provide an opportunity for students to apply for college credit at affiliated Universities for selected PLTW courses.  PLTW has more than 35 affiliate college and university partners that offer students credit for completing PLTW courses in high school.
