New STEM Magnet Schools

The CCSD is proud to announce the opening of three new STEM magnet schools: Roger Gehring ES, Lied MS, and Mike O’Callaghan MS. Authentic STEM experiences will be a common thread in all three schools, responding to the calls from the industry and community, as well as alignment to higher education. All three schools will infuse STEM concepts across the curriculum, offering a dynamic, technology rich, project-based, rigorous curriculum, designed to stimulate potential, interest, and creativity, while simultaneously promoting academic achievement through the study of STEM disciplines. Each school will take a unique approach to STEM implementation, described below, that differentiates it from other STEM magnet schools in the CCSD.
