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

 

Early Emphasis on Math and Science Education:

Students attending SST begin their departmentalized 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.
