A significant PV milestone has been reached.  The photo below is of Explorer MS students who signed up and completed the online Computer Science 101 course from Stanford.  These are the first PV students to receive PV course credit while their teachers provided the Stanford course in a hybrid and flipped format.    Vista Verde MS, Greenway MS and Desert Shadow MS are gearing up for their first completions of Stanford's CS 101.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC's) are being championed by world-class universities, providing fantastic content, free and online to the world.  Feel free to visit edX and Coursera - sign up for a course.  PV high school classes are now using MOOC resources (e.g., AP Preparation Courses)  to engage and help their students change the world, for the better.
