Akron STEM High School Reviews
I like the amount of freedom they give you when it comes to doing assignments and projects, but they need to learn to keep the school as a whole more consistent
This school was not a good one. It was very ghetto like and my home school offered better things than STEM did
The National Inventors Hall of Fame of Science, Technology, engineering, and Mathematics strives towards a STEM-related field. With robotics and AP computer sciences courses, it allows students to gain real-world concepts of STEM-related careers. NIHF STEM selects students based on academic achievement in the past. NIHF STEM acknowledges its incoming freshmen to go by its "core values": grit, reflection, creativity, critical thinking, self-direction, and collaboration. Considering NIHF STEM is owned by The University of Akron and therefore located on-campus groups students receive a feel of college life. Students can also earn college credit(CCP) through The University of Akron or Stark State college. NIHF STEM overall is a school for students thinking of pursuing a career in advanced technology and design.
I think that if you want to be able to take college classes stem is the place to go. However, stem lacks a lot of things. One thing would be teachers, there are a few great teachers but then there are a lot of lazy teachers. Also there isn’t a large selection of classes to take. Lastly, there are no sports.
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.
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!
I have been at the Akron STEM High School for almost four years now and have enjoyed every minute. From the higher course classes I have been taking, I feel more prepared for college. The learning coaches I have had were supportive with me throughout the courses. In addition, the University of Akron is right across the street from the school, so when we take college credit plus, we can walk to our classes easily. I highly recommend going to this school.
I went to the STEM Middle School before going to the STEM High School in Akron and I have always been interested in the STEM fields for college pursuit but I have found that even students who are not as interested in the STEM careers are pushed to achieve their dreams such as arts and such and everyone who is planning to go to college is helped by the school counselor to find scholarships and opportunities.
When I started out in the 2014-15 school year, everything was great. Blocked classes, great administration and fun events. Last year, however, everything changed when the school was roped in by the district, and now we have an administration that puts a little too much effort in improving our test scores (it’s ok to put a little bit of time into it, but this it almost feels cult-like) abs they dropped block classes, making fitting college classes into an already crammed schedule even more of a nightmare.
I am a senior at The National Inventors Hall of Fame STEM High School. I love STEM because it is a school with many opportunities. The teachers make learning fun and enjoyable by meeting every learner's needs. They teach lessons so you can understand the material better. They also help us prepare for college classes by including things like self-directed learning. I especially love all the extracurricular activities offered to me at STEM. They have clubs that gives me experience for my future.
As a student at the Akron STEM High School, I believe that the teacher are preparing us for college readiness. I'm a student at does post-secondary college education at the University of Akron, I know that they prepare us for the future. The teachers are outstanding and I believe that they are the best for the job.
The NIHF STEM High School is a generally good school, with only minor flaws. These flaws include a tendency to have to do projects instead of tests, and a sometimes confusing class/work structure. A large plus-side is the free laptop you get to keep until you graduate.
Akron STEM High School is one of the greatest schools across the area. It promotes leadership, ingenuity, and integrity in a way that has impacted each student in one way or another. STEM has made me want to achieve for higher expectations and allowed me to design my own path.
A great school that prepares you for college quite well. Great teachers and college credit opportunities. Being on Akron University Campus gives even more opportunities to students. A great with nice and diverse students. Learning is made fun by most teachers while still learning the content. Its a great school I would recommend to anyone!
Our school is a top rating school in the state. Some of the student get a core class done within one semester. Student are allow to take college class with required ACT score.
At our school there is a no bullying policy. The school nurse comes on a schedule. The school does a random drug check with police dogs.
This school have a few club that some student might injoy. At our school there is a student council, science olympaid, HIP and some much more. Each of the club have a different in the level of commitment.
It is really fun to go here not just because of the grades but of the people in that environment. The school does a spirt week twice a year and it really fun. Also during the beginning of the year the school did a senior auction. What make this school school unique is that there are different type of students. I would choose this school if I could to do it over again because of the learning environment they have.
At my school the teachers help us will the work we need help with. All the teachers at my school have a different teaching styles, like one teacher talk about the subject the whole class another teacher would talk about how to do it and let us do it one our own. The teachers I have are will prepared for class and have high knowledge on the subject they teach. The teachers are helpful in and out of class. They try to keep the grades organize. The teachers at my school are awesome.
I love everything about STEM. The teachers are very hands-on and want to see you succeed.
