New Carlisle, Indiana--New Prairie High School announced today that it has received national certification for its Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program that it has been offering since 2007- PLTW, a nonprofit organization and the nation's leading provider of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education programs, offers a rigorous world-class curriculum that allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science class to real-life biomedical science projects. PLTW also prides itself on high-quality professional development of its teachers and an engaged network of business, community and university partners to give students the fullest experience.

The national PLTW recognition program distinguishes schools for successfully demonstrating a commitment to PLTW's national standards. Additionally, certification as a PLTW school provides students with the opportunity to apply for college credit or receive college-level recognition at PLTW affiliate universities when they successfully complete select PLTW courses in high school.

"New Prairie High School should be congratulated for demonstrating once again its commitment to PLTW's quality standards," said PLTW President and CEO Vince Bertram.

Students benefit from PL1W's innovative, project-based curriculum that encourages creativity, problem solving, and critical thinking.

NPUSC Confucius Classroom Dedication

Scan-to-Me from 172 28 0 99 2013-10-01 130312 Page 1
The New Prairie United School Corporation and the Confucius Institute of Valparaiso University were notified in August 2013, that they had been designated as a Confucius Classroom by Hanban, the education arm of the Chinese Government.  This is the culmination of two years' work between NPUSC and CIVU.  New Prairie is now one of six Confucius Classrooms in Indiana and less than one hundred in the United States.  Confucius Classrooms are a national network of exemplary Chinese language programs and serve as model sites for developing the field of Chinese language and culture teaching in American schools.

It is our hope that this designation will continue to build the Chinese Program at the New Prairie and strengthen its partnership with the Confucius Institute of Valparaiso University.

NPUSC Confucius Classroom hosted a dedication ceremony on September 16, 2013 at New Prairie High School.  Professors of the Confucius Institute at Valparaiso University, state legislators, numerous NPUSC Admininstrators and Board Members attended. A performance which included Carnegie Arts, South Shore Orchestra, Troy Webdell (Conductor), South Shore Dane Alliance, Valparaiso University Dept. of Foreign Languages and Valparaiso University Dept. of International Studies was presented.
