Our teachers are always getting us to become involved such as joining activities and clubs being provided for the student body. Everyone at STEM doesn’t discriminate which makes this campus very inclusive, considerate, and understandable. We work together in order to achieve our standards of what an education matters to make communities more successful and proactive towards student learning. Have different types of aid such as flashcards, charts, and implement other resources from recommended textbooks for each class in order to have student obtain information stored when exam time comes around. Students can get a study buddy; forming study groups, getting to know better what the school consist.
Although my school is small and does not offer the same opportunities as regular high schools, such as sports or pep rallies, I love my school because you get to know almost every student and you form connections with teachers. Teachers are able to help students one on one so that they may better understand the subject. Students are given the chance to enroll in AP courses, along with dual enrollment.
