Motto: Excellence is the standard
 

North Community High School STEM Academy - NSTEM is a rigorous, college preparatory program that emphasizes Project-Based Learning as a means to study Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Students use active, hands-on methods to answer the age-old question: Why? The concept of "Why?" is demonstrated using an interdisciplinary, thematic curricular approach: Why is science a reliable predictor of outcomes related to social studies? Why is it important to be an effective writer in order to fully understand math? With the help of technology, students use principles of engineering to apply what they learn in order to benefit their school, their community and their future.
