High School STEM
8th graders see the high school STEM Program in action
The students had an opportunity to experience some of the activities the STEM courses provide and to talk to high school students presently taking STEM courses.
PLTW is the nation's leading provider of high-quality STEM-focused curricula designed to help students develop the skills needed to succeed in the global economy. PLTW courses transform classrooms into collaborative spaces where students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning.
Using the same principles, district staff have designed new STEM courses and redesigned previously offered courses to introduce and emphasize STEM skills.
Along with extracurricular activities such as the Waksman, STEM club and NJ STEM League, the PLTW and district courses ensure that students can specialize in STEM courses throughout high school and are prepared for college specialization and a career in STEM-related fields.
Two sample high school schedules are shown below. It is important to note that there is a lot of flexibility in the sample schedules shown. In addition, although every attempt is made to accommodate student wishes, conflicts do arise and the district cannot ensure that each course is available when needed.
