WHAT IS THE STEM ACADEMY?
The STEM Academy is a magnet program for sixth through twelfth graders who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This is a college-preparatory program located on the Nimitz Middle School and Lee High School campuses. In the context of a small, diverse learning community united by common interests, the STEM Academy creates visions of future academic and career possibilities and enables students to translate those visions into the realities of college graduation, informed citizenship, and international leadership.
