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.

Student Responsibilities & Expectations:

1. Maintain outstanding citizenship, punctual attendance, and an excellent work ethic in all classes and extracurricular activities.

2. Achieve passing grades in all classes.

3. Adhere to STEM expectations set forth by faculty, i.e. behavior, assignment completion.

4. Meet the minimum number of “service hours” for your grade level.

A student's continued enrollment in a magnet program is contingent upon satisfactory attendance, grades, and behavior. Magnet program students will be required to follow the NEISD Student Code of Conduct. The campus administration has the authority to revoke the enrollment of a student during the school year for failure to adhere to school rules; NEISD policies; local, state or federal law.

Any student action that results in a Disciplinary Alternative Education Placement (DAEP) may result in the student being removed from the magnet course/program and returned to his/her home campus upon the completion of the DAEP.
