[Huntington, WV] –Spring Valley High School announced today that it has received national certification for its Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program that has been offered since 2011. 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 activities, projects and problems. 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.

Here is a letter from Marsha Thompson, assistant principal at Buffalo Elementary praising Spring Valley students. Great job students!
“The students and staff at Buffalo Elementary School would like to thank the students at SVHS for their help and generosity this past year. At Veteran’s Day we had the pleasure and honor of the SVHS JROTC in our ceremony. That always makes it extra meaningful! We were, as always, very impressed with these young women and men. Recently, at Christmas, we had an Angel Tree. We would like to send a special thanks to the BETA club and the Spanish Honors Club for providing a Christmas for several of our students! SVHS students are amazing and we appreciate you so much!”
