Why STEM?

We selected the STEM focus, based on community input, research and alignment with our high school redesign.  Our 2015 family survey indicated significant support and interest in more STEM opportunities for students.  STEM is highly engaging, hands-on learning that promotes strong problem solving and communication skills, which are needed through school and in all occupations.  Additionally, the fastest growing and highest earning occupations are in the STEM fields, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
