The three PBL schools with an asterisk after the grade levels signify schools, which have been deemed exemplary schools and National Demonstration Sites for the New Tech

Network (NTN) this school year. The Plymouth Community School Corporation is the only school system within Michiana to have achieved this impressive recognition of having 11 grade levels serving as demonstration schools. Demonstration site schools host tours for national, state, and local schools and districts to experience a New Tech school firsthand and play a key role in the development and scale of the NTN.

Applications are open to students in grades K-10. Current PCSC PBL learners do not need to apply. Contact Amy Gerard, the Director of PBL by phone (574) 936-2178 extension 1222 or email agerard@plymouth.k12.in.us, with any questions.
