KALISPELL - A Kalispell high school is helping prepare students for the global economy, before they even reach college.
Glacier High School will add Project Lead the Way to its curriculum next fall, which consists of project-based engineering courses.
The curriculum helps students develop critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills, by applying what they've learned in both math and science classes.
GHS Principal Callie Langhor says the courses will be partially based off of business and engineer needs in the Flathead Valley.
"The neat thing is that if a student chooses not to jump into college right away, they're going to have some skills that the local businesses are going to be looking for. Hopefully, we've put those students in a really competitive position to get some jobs."
Glacier High School is the first AA school in Kalispell to introduce this program into its curriculum.
