Stillwater Middle School has been recognized as a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished School for 2018-2019. It is one of just six middle schools in the state of Minnesota, and one of 148 in the nation, to receive the recognition.

The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement by providing opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineer and math) courses.

All of our middle school students take Project Lead the Way classes in grades six and seven, and as an elective in grade eight. High school students also have options to take PLTW electives.

Through PLTW programs, students develop STEM knowledge as well as in-demand, transportable skills that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
