    Project Lead The Way (PLTW) provides transformative learning experiences for our students and teachers by creating an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive. Through pathways in engineering, students not only learn technical skills, but also learn to solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate, and collaborate. 

    South St. Paul Secondary is proud to offer the Project Lead the Way program to all students in grades 6-8. The PLTW Gateway program is implemented in courses for grades 6-8, and the PLTW Engineering is offered for all students in 9-12.
