Six CCSD schools honored by Project Lead The Way

July 6, 2021

Charleston County School District is proud to announce a record six schools were named Distinguished Schools by Project Lead The Way (PLTW), either as a Gateway School (middle school) or as a High School for the 2020-21 school year. A school earns the PLTW Distinguished School honor for its commitment to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs.

Moultrie Middle School received this award for the first time ever due to expanded course offerings that were available to students as well as the hard work and dedication of their PLTW teachers to get students interested in the program.

Wando High School is the first high school in South Carolina honored by PTLW four years in a row, and Thomas C. Cario Middle School is the only middle school in the state to pick up Distinguished School status four consecutive years for its PLTW Gateway to Technology program.

Charleston Charter School for Math and Science (CCSMS) is a Distinguished High School for the second year in a row, and the middle school program received Gateway honors for the third time in four years. CCSMS is one of just a few schools in the country to pick up multiple awards from PLTW in the same year.

In addition, Morningside Middle School was recognized for the third year in a row as a Gateway School and James Island Charter High School has earned this honor for the third time in four years.
