The public is invited to learn about the Edmonds School District's new STEM Magnet School in an informational metting Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the theater of Mountlake Terrace High School, 21801 44th Ave. W., Mountlake Terrace.
The STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program, to be based at Mountlake Terrace High, is open to all incoming 9th-grade students in the Edmonds School District beginning this fall. Students applying from outside the Mountlake Terrace High School service area may only enroll in the STEM honors diploma program of study.
STEM boasts a technology-driven curriculum that emphasizes science, technology, engineering and mathematics and is a choice four-year program in the district.
"We have not launched something of this magnitude since the international baccalaureate (IB) program came to fruition nearly two decades ago," says district spokeswoman D.J. Jakala.
