Exciting News for Our School
To receive this honor, the programs completed an arduous application process outlining its STEM teaching and learning practices. Eighteen schools applied for the designation; only eight were selected for site visits. During the site visits, judges toured classrooms, reviewed student work and participated in panel discussions of Students, Parents and Business Partners. Judges walked away impressed with the rigor and talent within our program.
Our program will be recognized on June 2nd in Raleigh. We're all very excited to have received such a distinction and quite proud of our students and teachers!
