Dougherty Valley among schools make Newsweek's Top 500 best list

Some of the best STEM (science, tech, engineering and mathematics) courses in the country can be found right here at several Tri-Valley high schools, according to Newsweek's recently released Top 500 Best STEM Schools rankings.

Dougherty Valley High in San Ramon, as well as Foothill and Amador Valley high schools in Pleasanton and the Quarry Lane School in Dublin, made the annual list. Overall, 82 of the best 500 STEM schools in the U.S. were located in California, many of those within the Bay Area.

"We're fortunate to have amazing #CTE PLTW - Project Lead The Way pathways for students at both schools from computer science to biomed. Way to go #Dons and #Falcons!", the Pleasanton Unified School District posted on social media last week.

The district-wide program Project Lead The Way teaches pre-K through 12th-graders about computer science, engineering and biomedical science through hands-on projects and classroom lessons.
