Elmwood Local Schools this summer was recognized as a 2020-21 Project Lead the Way Distinguished School.

It is one of just 204 high schools and 158 middle schools across the U.S. to receive this honor for providing broad access to transformative learning experiences for students through PLTW Engineering.

Students at Elmwood Middle School take modules in Energy and the Environment, Design and Modeling, Magic of Electrons, and Automation and Robotics. This is the third consecutive year that the middle school has been honored with national recognition.

Of the 285 middle schools in Ohio with a PLTW Middle School program, Elmwood is one of only 28 that received national recognition.
