FWBHS Receives National Recognition for Commitment to Empowering Students

Fort Walton Beach High School announced today that it has been recognized as a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished School for providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through PLTW Biomedical Science. It is one of just 133 high schools across the U.S. to receive this honor. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of K-12 students and teachers in over 10,500 schools across the U.S.

“Years ago, Fort Walton Beach High School and PLTW formed a partnership aimed directly at promoting student success,” said John Spolski, Fort Walton Beach High School Principal. “This partnership, supported by enthusiastic instructors and a comprehensive professional development platform, directly impacts instruction. The high energy PLTW Biomedical Science program is designed to help students develop expertise and foster transformational skills. Young adults in secondary school want access to meaningful courses, and PLTW at FWBHS has accomplished just that! Becoming a PLTW school of distinction is an honor and a testament to the complex content that the students and stakeholders tackle each day. Fort Walton Beach High School is honored by this recognition. A deep thanks to the executive leadership at PLTW and our community partners.”
