The New Englewood STEM High School opened in fall 2019 starting with an inaugural freshman class. The school is housed in a brand new, state-of-the-art facility, which includes world-class multipurpose educational spaces, a modern outdoor sports facility, and a school-based medical center for use by both students as well as community residents. The school will add one grade each subsequent year until it serves grades 9-12 beginning in school year 2022-23. The school will be a neighborhood Early College Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) High School, where every classroom will be designed to develop students into knowledgeable, flexible, resourceful problem solvers.
Through a unique collaboration that connects high school, college, and career, the New Englewood STEM High School will be paired with a City College and an industry leader, who will provide real-world experience and prepare students for high-demand careers in science and technology.,
Students will have the option to earn college credit through Kennedy-King College, leading to an associate degree, an advanced certificate, or a basic certificate while in high school. Students can also get hands-on career experience and earn certifications through Career Technical Education (CTE) Pathways in Information Technology (IT) and Health Sciences. The school’s industry partners will provide valuable enrichment opportunities, such as internships, mentoring, and other work-based learning experiences. Through these programs, students will graduate uniquely prepared to succeed in STEM careers, while their early college and career credentials will give them a head-start toward completing their degree.
