Your 9th grade year will be your introduction to STEM at Lancaster High School. We call this the 'Freshman Immersion' because the goal is to immerse our incoming students into the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. You need to be prepared to see the connections between science and math, while integrating technology and engineering principles.
In order give our students the most immersive experience possible, students may elect to take part in our Project-Based "STEM 9" Experience. Here, you will be scheduled into a block class that will combine Honors Algebra II and Honors Physical Science. But don't be fooled... these classes will be unlike anything you have experienced. The courses will be taught using a combination of direct instruction, modeling, project-based learning, and flipped classroom instruction. You will guide your learning - but your teachers will be there with you every step of the way.
"The STEM program includes the best and brightest Lancaster High School has to offer. We want to give them the best opportunity to learn and grow."
