North Carolina STEM SCHOOL DESIGNATION

We are in the midst of a multi-year process of applying for and earning recognition as a North Carolina STEM School of Distinction. One part of that is to connect with various businesses men and women who are in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) field.


Additionally, we would like to make connections with parents who represent many careers. We are asking that our parents please complete the Google Form to help us build our Stanley STEM Network.


Thank you to those who have already completed the form. If you use STEM skills in anyway in your profession, we need you in one of many ways!
