My experience with Akron STEM High School has been great. I have the opportunity to take college classes and with the Akron University campus being right across the street and Stark State being right downtown my options are endless. The available classes are great and whatever STEM High School does not offer, I can sign up for College Credit Plus (CCP) and take classes at the college. The teachers are awesome and easy to work with and they work with all of the ifferent types of student's learning styles. Overall, STEM High School is a great environment with many opportunities and amazing teachers.
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!
