Project Lead the Way (Engineering Pathway)

PLTW Students

Martin Luther King High School committed to be a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) school for Engineering in 2000. For a school to offer this national engineering program there must be a continuous fiscal commitment, dedicated facility resources, and most importantly dedicated teachers committed to on-going training to accommodate changes in the engineering industry, a desire to develop rapport with students and a commitment to student’s academic success. PLTW is a program offered across the United States to all schools who decide to make the commitment, but only a select few make the decision to move forward and Martin Luther King High School is a school who has made the commitment.

The Project Lead the Way Program at MLKHS is proud to offer three different pathways for students to gain education in experience to make a decision on a possible post secondary engineering field.

Project Lead the Way – (Engineering & Architecture)

 


In addition, MLKHS has worked hard to make sure the engineering classes from the Principles of Engineering level and higher are honors courses and students can earn college credit through the articulation process which provides college credit on the high school transcript.

*These are articulated classes and therefore the colleges can rescind or change their articulation agreement at any time. 

** King High School engineering students are eligible for articulated credit from Cerritos College. The application process is separate from Riverside City College. Information about Cerritos College articulation is available in the spring. In addition, Project Lead The Way and Cerritos College have an agreement for students who have participated in the PLTW program at their high schools and have successfully completed an engineering pathway. Students who actually attend Cerritos College will be allowed to skip the Introductory Engineering course and start at a higher level their freshman year.

If you are interested in the Project Lead the Way Program at Martin Luther King High School, please contact the Program Coordinator: Mr. Michael Martin at mmartin@riversidedunified.org for more information. 

Students who would not attend Martin Luther King High School as their home school can apply as a transfer student for PLTW. Students who are accepted to the PLTW Program must commit to taking four years of engineering classes. If you are interested in applying for a transfer, please continue to read below:

1. If you currently reside within the RUSD district boundaries and are interested in an intra-district transfer for King HS Engineering, please download these Intra-district transfer form documents.

 2. If you currently reside outside the RUSD district boundaries and are interested in an inter-district transfer, please download these Inter-district transfer form documents.

If you currently live within the Martin Luther King HS attendance area, you do NOT need a transfer form. You will simply select the appropriate engineering class with your high school registration. If you are not sure if you live in the Martin Luther King High School attendance area, please use the school locator by clicking here and entering your address.

Please email all documents to Mike Martin at mmartin@riversideunified.org 

All documents are due to MLKHS (NOT Pupil Services) by Friday, December 4, 2020. 

A lottery, if needed, will take place on Friday, December 11, 2020.
