Cabrillo Earns National Certification

Cabrillo High School recently earned national certification from the nonprofit Project Lead The Way, a leading provider of science, technology, engineering and math curriculum.

The rigorous curriculum allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science classes to real-life engineering and technology projects.  PLTW also prides itself on high-quality professional development for teachers, and active involvement of business, community and university partners.

“Cabrillo High School should be congratulated for demonstrating its commitment to PLTW’s quality standards,” said PLTW President and CEO Vince Bertram.  “The real winners here, however, are Cabrillo’s students, who benefit from innovative, project-based curriculum that encourages creativity, problem solving and critical thinking.”
