BOZEMAN, Mont. – Bozeman High School was recognized on Wednesday as a distinguished high school by the national non-profit organization, Project Lead The Way (PLTW).
This is the second year BHS has received this recognition for increasing student’s access, engagement, and achievement in its STEM programs.
The high school was one of 64 schools nationwide and the only school in Montana to receive the honor.
“We talked about students who were here; they were interested in working on prosthetics, students who were interested in working on clean water solutions, or other medical related and engineering related problems that they want to help solve,” said David Dimmett, PLTW’s senior vice president and chief engagement officer. “To me, that’s the excitement, to hear them talk about what they’re learning, how they’re learning it, and really, what they want to do with their lives.”
One of the major things Project Lead the Way recognizes Bozeman for is its ability to get women into these STEM classes that have been historically dominated by men.
