Math and Science-Focused Education
School of Science and Technology was founded with the purpose of better preparing students to excel in college through a math and science-focused education.
- Students who take rigorous math and science courses are more likely to attend college
- People with strong math and science backgrounds are highly employable
- Shortages in workers skilled in math and science affect U.S. performance in the global market economy
Our students develop an understanding and appreciation of science, math, and engineering by participating in hands-on and project-based learning.
Students learning through a project-based curriculum develop the ability to transfer their learning to new situations, demonstrate an increased ability to define problems and support their reasoning, and are better able to tackle conceptual problems than those taught with a more traditional curriculum.
Early Emphasis on Math and Science Education
Students attending School of Science and Technology Advancement begin their compartmentalized math and science instruction in the third grade, enabling them to receive a strong math and science foundation from highly qualified teachers at an early age.
