Students in the PHS Culinary Arts 2 class make pizza from scratch using an impingement oven donated by Sargento, a project designed by instructor Gale Litt to incorporate a real-life industry application.
Posted February 5, 2018
Students in the Culinary Arts 2 class at Plymouth Comprehensive High School recently made pizza from scratch using an impingement oven donated by Sargento.
“I wanted to incorporate an industry application,” said instructor Gale Litt. “They made the hard lean dough from scratch as they learned about yeast doughs.”
Like the pizza project, much of the curriculum throughout the high school is designed to prepare students to become productive members of society – whatever path they intend to take after graduation. The entire district works hard to prepare all students for the next stage of their lives, whether they are bound for college, technical school, the military, or the workforce.
After all, Comprehensive is our middle name.
In addition to the robust a Culinary Arts program – recently named one of the Elite 50 Hospitality Programs in the country by Sullivan University – we feature:
• The Food Science & Agriculture Center, modern research facility supporting seven academic areas.
• The LTC-Plymouth Science & Technology Center, a high-tech manufacturing facility that gives students experience with all phases of the design process as they take projects from conception to completion.
• The nationally recognized Project Lead the Way engineering program, with one class at Riverview Middle School and six courses at Plymouth High School.
• A head start on higher education, with nearly 60 college credits available to Plymouth High School students.
Families exploring their options through open enrollment are encouraged to consider the Plymouth School District, which is just the right size to offer personal attention along with a wealth of opportunities. Our mission is to encourage everyone to see and be his/her personal best through successful learning experiences. Become your best!
Wisconsin's inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents of children in kindergarten through 12th grade to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they reside. There is no tuition cost to parents who opt for open enrollment, though families may be charged the same fees as resident students. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.
The enrollment period in 2018 is from Monday, Feb. 5 to Monday, April 30. The state encourages online applications at http://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment. Paper applications, available in the Plymouth School District office, must be returned to the office by April 30.
