  • About STEM


    The purpose of the STEM Academy is to increase student achievement by engaging and exposing students to innovative STEM instruction while simultaneously acting as demonstration sites for math and science teaching and learning statewide.

    In the context of a small, diverse learning community united by a common interest in the significant issues of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, 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.

    The STEM Academy serves as a model of problem-based, technology-rich curriculum that enables and empowers students and faculty to engage in professional learning environments where science and math serve as vehicles for discovery, innovation, and independent problem solving.

    STEM HS Structure

    Legacy of Educational Excellence (LEE) High School hosts 3 magnet programs, with each hosting more than 400 students. The magnet programs are:

    International School of the Americas (ISA)
    North East School of the Arts (NESA)
    Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Academy

    STEM Academy operates as a school-within-a-school model. STEM students take all of their core classes and STEM electives by receiving instruction from a STEM faculty member. All other non-core classes and elective courses are a result of collaboration with the LEE faculty.

    NESA and STEM students are part of the LEE student body, and therefore ranked comprehensively within the entire grade level of LEE HS.
