About STEM HS
The Regional STEM High School was designed to meet the needs of local and national workforce demands in engineering and applied sciences.Partnering with Project Lead the Way (PLTW) was the clear choice because of the project-based, hands-on learning approach woven throughout the curriculum.Project Lead the Way is the nation’s leading provider of STEM programs for over 5,000 schools across the country. For two and a half hours a day, 11th grade students will engage in open-ended problem solving, learn and apply the engineering design process, and utilize the same industry-leading technology and software used in the world’s top companies.During the other half of the day, students will complete their high school graduation requirements. Additionally, courses such as AP Physics, AP Calculus, as well as other courses needed for students to earn a NYS Advanced Regents Diploma or Regents Diploma will be offered. A contextualized approach integrating these courses with engineering and applied science will bring more meaning to each student’s learning experience.
