Diamond Bar High School Receives National Recognition for Commitment to Empowering Students for the Second Consecutive Year. Named as a distinguished school for STEM and career learning program.
Diamond Bar 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 Engineering. It is one of just 64 high schools across the U.S. to receive this honor and only one of three schools in California to receive this award in consecutive years. PLTW is a nonprofit organization that serves millions of PreK-12 students and teachers in schools across the U.S.
“We are incredibly proud of our PLTW Engineering students and instructor, Mr. Johnny Hwang, for their commitment to this rigorous academic program and achievements in STEM fields. These students are developing the critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary to navigate the real-world challenges that must be addressed by the next generation of engineers, scientists, mathematicians and leaders. We have an increasing number of our PLTW students applying their learning beyond the classroom by participating in both regional and national science, technology, engineering, robotics and mathematics competitions. We are honored to partner with such talented students and look forward to the continued achievement of our PLTW students as they pursue future degrees and careers in STEM fields.” - Reuben Jones, Principal, Diamond Bar High School
