STEM was a great school. It has prepared me to go to college and to be ready for my future. I gained many leadership experiences by participating in numerous extracurriculars. The foundation at STEM greatly helped me to get many scholarships and to go to a great college. The coaches at STEM are amazing. they help learners learn and understand in multiple ways and formats. They make the classroom environment fun and enjoyable to learn and go to each day. My STEM experience was truly awesome and spectacular!
STEM is a great place to study and learn. It offers a chance to supplement your high school curriculum with college classes from the University of Akron. We are located on campus, so all you have to do is walk to a UA class to earn both high school and college credit. However, it is not a normal high school experience. There are no sports (unless you count chess and robotics), all honors classes, and few other extracurricular activities. However, it is open enrollment, so you can do any extracurriculars at your district school. The teachers are all top notch, each student gets a laptop for school use, and there are so many opprotunites that extend the classroom into the surrounding community. It is a STEM school, so there are extra science and math courses with special technology and engineering pathways. I highly recommend it.
