Tesla is a wonderful program for all students in the Appleton area whom are interested in mathematics, science, and/or any field of engineering. They start you off early with a core analysis of the engineering design process, and the variety of available courses helps every student graduate with a plan for their future. The school's engineering courses are designed by Project Lead the Way, and they are extremely in depth and easy to understand. However, the school could not achieve the level of education it does without the hard work, passion, and dedication of the staff, wich sets Tesla apart from other PLTW schools in Wisconsin. Every Tesla teacher makes it their first priority to help you in whatever ways they can, and they encourage their students to try new things, no matter their skill level. All in all, every Tesla student graduates with a significant advantage - whether they decide engineering is their cup of tea or not - if they are willing to work hard and try new things.
Tesla is a sub program in the Applton East High School. Although we are a separate school. It's nice to have a specific homeroom and classes with a particular group. Though I really wish East would change their lunches. It's gotten somewhat better, but last I checked the company that sells the food to us in the same one that prison's buy from.
