30-03-2022 10 6 0 0 Báo lỗi

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is an acronym that stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The ultimate goal of STEM education in the United States is to pique students' interest in STEM subjects from an early age. This will benefit them when they enter the job market, as well as the overall economy. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education must be included in a competitive global marketplace. Let's take a look at the top STEM high schools in the United States.

High Technology High School

High Technology High School (HTHS), founded in 1991, is a four-year STEM public high school for students in grades ninth through twelfth, located in the Lincroft section of Middletown Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey, and operated as a collaborative effort between the Monmouth County Vocational School District (MCVSD) and Brookdale Community College. It is a pre-engineering academy that offers courses like Introduction to Engineering and Design, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and Engineering Principles. It belongs to the National Consortium of Specialized Secondary Schools for Mathematics, Science, and Technology.


The High School curriculum prepares students for their college and career futures by showing them how to use the technology they have acquired throughout their education rather than teaching widgets and programs. How do they decide which program is best for which investigation? How do they learn to use tools they've never seen before? How do they self-assess their knowledge to ensure they have obtained what they require? Expect no black-and-white answers. Success is more likely to be determined by student knowledge transfer than by their ability to check off boxes on a rubric.


Seniors from High Technology participate in a mentorship one day per week for the duration of the semester. Students conduct real-time research in a technological field alongside an engineer, scientist, or researcher. Each student gives a multimedia presentation to a colloquium of peers and mentors at the end of the mentorship. This document summarizes all of the formal and informal learning that occurred at the end of the senior year. Many of the courses at HTHS are taught by teams of teachers who are experts in their fields. The science and technology program, the humanities program, and the sophomore technologies program all integrate multiple disciplines to enrich students' subject matter. Students work in groups and are evaluated through the exhibition as well as traditional methods.

The Davidson Academy of Nevada

The Davidson Academy is a STEM school for profoundly gifted students with two accredited options: an online campus for students living anywhere in the United States and Canada and a Reno, Nevada, public school located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno for students living in the area. The school, which opened in 2006, is the nation's first public school for profoundly gifted (high IQ) students.


The Davidson Academy Reno campus has 144 students enrolled for the 2021-2022 school year, and the online campus has 98 students enrolled. Each student at the Davidson Academy receives a personalized learning plan that is designed to provide them with an education that is specifically tailored to their individual, unique needs. Unlike traditional school settings, the academy's classes group students based on ability rather than age. The school is intended to provide an educational environment in which highly intelligent young people's abilities, strengths, and interests are encouraged and supported.


The Davidson Academy is the nation's first free public school for exceptionally gifted middle and high school students. Students who are profoundly gifted are three standard deviations above the mean on the bell curve, putting them at the far end of the intelligence, or IQ, spectrum. Unlike traditional school settings, students at the Academy are divided into groups based on ability rather than age.

They were founded on the premise that the brightest minds deserve to be given the attention and resources they require to thrive. Since that time, the Davidson Academy has been steadfast in its commitment to providing access to gifted education. At both Davidson Academy Reno and Davidson Academy Online, their dedicated and visionary staff leads the conversation about gifted youth with empathy and understanding.
