STEM School and Academy provides an enriched academic program for highly motivated students. Almost 25% are identified gifted. We offer weekly tours to provide parents with a clear understanding of our program. Visit our website for tour dates and more information. No testing required for admission. Our lottery is conducted in January for the following year. Contact our registrar for admission information if applying after January. Our faculty, staff, students and parents have created a very special place to learn and grow. Watch our video uploaded on our website to see what students and teachers are saying about their school.

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
yes the student do respect the other students bc they have to work on project together in every class and they don't pick there partners the teacher mix up the bunch. You know just like real life you cant pick who you work with!
In this school you have lots of kids that did not fit into the other schools bc they were smart or have glasses or socially did not fit in. So all the kids at this school are friends and don't judge by looks.
Yes they work hard to teach the kids to think! Not just memory info. If they do poorly on a test they have to redo to to lean the info not just take the grade. No the retake will not change there bad grade but it shows them you have to learn the stuff b4 test or after. This school will not pass them to next level of math unless they receive a A or B! Finally a place that want to teach not just push the kids thru and get the money.
The teachers sure want honesty, integrity, and fairness but it is not seen in the students eyes. I can tell you, in a students eyes what I see. I see people graffiti the bathrooms. I see people play truth or dare and do some crazy stuff. I see students flip teachers off behind their backs. The thing you hear a lot is "I wont get caught. No teacher is looking."
I do not care for STEM. I myself am a student there and did not have a good experience. I am a female and was outnumbered by the guys. There were about 5 girls at most and 20 guys at at the most in each class. Since I am a girl, I know everything about all the girls in my grade and they know everything about me. Sometimes this is bad and good. You can stop rumors easily but you cant get away from the haters. STEM is too difficult for me education wise. When you first take the tour to STEM, it sounds great. Until you get into STEM. They say it is a "challenge". Well it is wayyyyy to hard for me. I used to be great at what I did in every class and now I have trouble just passing the classes.
