Ready To Be Plucked
Current 5th-grade students who are interested in attending Dearborn’s STEM Middle School this fall must apply by March 17.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Middle School (STEM) is one of the newest programs in the District and another example of the choices parents have when deciding upon the type of learning experiences they want for their children while attending the Dearborn Public Schools.
In social media terms, the school is really ‘trending” upwards and making a big impact on student learning. The school earned a spot on the State of Michigan’s list of Reward Schools ranking in the top 15 out of the 219 schools making the list. In order to get this designation, a school must either be ranked in the top 5% academically, have shown significant academic progress or have performed better than predicted.
“We strive to include a variety of “hands-on,” interactive lessons in our daily classroom learning, all with the goal of exposing our students to everything STEM,” commented STEM Middle School Principal Ms. Julia Maconochie.
Students are quickly making enrollment in the school one of the most sought after learning opportunities in the District. Online applications are now being accepted from current 5th-grade students who would like to attend the STEM Middle School.
Parents and students interested in applying for the fall, 2017 semester can apply online at https://stem.dearbornschools.org/stem-application. Applications from current 5th-grade students must be submitted online by March 17, 2017. Information will also be sent home with fifth-grade students currently attending Dearborn Public Schools.
Dearborn’s STEM school is located at The Heights Campus on Ann Arbor Trail.
