Since the school is so small, students get a lot on 1 on 1 time with teachers. Staying after or coming early isn't seen as a sign of failing or needing help, just being dedicated to learning. The courseload can be stressful, but good time management goes a long way. Very friendly teachers, and little to no drama between fellow classmates.
I have no experience with this school at all.
I am posting this to point out that there have been zero comments posted for this school in 5 whole years. One or even two years might be understandable with our generally apathetic American culture but five?
I am a former student of the School of Science and Engineering. The education is world class. The training I received there was very instrumental to my educational and personal development. Now I am a parent and would not hesitate to enroll my child into the school or and of the schools at Townview Magnet Center.
SEM offers a challenging environment for its students. I have noticed a great deal of support by the teachers with tutoring to help the students keep up with the demanding pace. There are numerous clubs and activities available so that students can stay engaged in their interests.
This is a place where intellectual curiosity and motivation to learn are the only requirements. I tell people that a one-eyed-flying purple people eater would fit right in if he/she/it were interested in science and math.
SEM has a great math and science curriculum Both of my sons have/will gratuate and their experience at SEM was great, prepared them for a great future and opened doors for them. Great school, Talented teachers, Dedicated administration!
The School of Science and Engineering does an outstanding job preparing students for their post-secondary education. They give them the knowledge, confidence and tools that they need to succeed in their college 'careers'.
