Program of Studies

The Plum Borough High School Program of Studies has enhanced the current course offerings to provide students with more alternatives when selecting their electives with a focus on technology. The new courses are: Introduction to Computer Science through Game Design, Unity 3D Programming, AP Computer Science Principles, STEAM Studio, Psychology, and History of the Holocaust. The English Department has also updated their Program of Studies by adding semester course classes, giving students more flexibility with scheduling opportunities. The purpose of the restructuring of course studies aligns with the school district’s Mission statement, which is to create globally competitive citizens.


In an effort to improve our high school, on February 13 and 14, 2017, a representative group of students met with the US Department of Justice (Community Relations), PA Department of Education (Center for Safe Schools), external facilitators, and administrators to identify lingering problems in the high school. Together, students proposed possible solutions to the presented issues and shared these issues with the administrators. A council of students was developed to regularly meet with administration. Subsequently, the SPIRIT council met with the student body during lunches to inform other students of the newly created group.

SPIRIT Mission Statement:

SPIRIT stands for Student Problem Identification and Resolution of Issues Together. It is designed to give the students a voice and empower them. SPIRIT is a student-focused organization, aimed toward identifying and solving issues in our school and community. Our SPIRIT council works directly with administration to actively address problems presented to us. We are here as student representatives so other students feel comfortable talking with us about issues they feel are prominent in our school. Over our two-day training, we have freely voiced issues that we are working toward solving to improve our district as a whole.
