Skills USA is grounded in the three components: workplace skills, personal skills, and skills grounded in academics. The SkillsUSA organization promptly promotes teamwork, goal setting, responsibility, communication and integrity. 

PRHS was not shy of skills: bringing back 10 medals in various skilled contests.

“A lot of school is on paper and working on a Chromebook. SkillsUSA kind of helps you learn with your hands and actually put things together. And so getting the opportunity to do aviation maintenance and technology was a good way for me to improve my hands on skills. And I was good enough to get first this year and last year, which is nice.”

— Kyle Dart
