Behind the Mask at Paul VI
Six noteworthy things about Paul VI High School.

by Staff

PLTW is another term for “awesome” – OK, maybe not technically, but hear them out. Project Lead the Way, a division of the College Board, enables schools like Paul VI to fast track significant STEM curricula. Having adopted the PLTW computer science module back in 2017, Paul VI is introducing the biomedical science program. The two-year elective suite is comprised of principles of biomedical science and human body systems, and debuts at Paul VI this fall.

Paul VI students have been taking AP Capstone and Project Lead the Way courses for years – The school enhanced its AP offerings back in 2016 by bringing the AP Research and AP Seminar courses on board. Paul VI also enforced its STEM program via the Project Lead the Way computer science module, supported with a state-of-the-art computer science and robotics lab.

The communications program is “hitting the road” – The tech-rich communications program took another step forward last year with a wireless livestream schedule. Having shed miles of cable, the new system allows for more freedom in terms of motion and artistry—the “dolly-cam” that runs the camera up the basketball court with the play is a favorite example. Communications teacher and program director Ricky Schuh has plans to bring PVI’s off-premise sports to the online audience. This year, the Eagles will be coming to you live from the golf course, the pool, the tennis courts and the ice rink.

The Eagle is incognito—at least in the gym – Phys Ed students and athletes who compete in the gym will be bringing their A-game on a newly installed floor that features a fresh school logo that names (but doesn’t illustrate) the Paul VI Eagle.

There’s a secret to our warm welcome – Visitors to Paul VI are literally given a warm welcome in the lobby, but every other area of the building features air conditioning. While large spaces like the dining hall, media center and auditorium have been cooled for years, a ductless AC system was installed in 2018 to bring a breath of fresh clean cool air to classrooms, hallways, the gym and everywhere else.

They have fashion police – and they’ve just been given a new assignment. Paul VI faculty greet students at the door each day with a warm hello and an eagle eye to make sure the uniform is worn properly and with pride. This year, the students have the option to add an extra piece: a quarter zip for the boys and a full-zip fleece for the girls.
