The STEM Academy is a magnet program for sixth through twelfth graders who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This is a college-preparatory program located on the Nimitz Middle School and Lee High School campuses. In the context of a small, diverse learning community united by common interests, the STEM Academy creates visions of future academic and career possibilities and enables students to translate those visions into the realities of college graduation, informed citizenship, and international leadership.
STEM HS Structure
Legacy of Educational Excellence (LEE) High School hosts 3 magnet programs, with each hosting more than 400 students. The magnet programs are:
International School of the Americas (ISA)
North East School of the Arts (NESA)
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Academy
STEM Academy operates as a school-within-a-school model. STEM students take all of their core classes and STEM electives by receiving instruction from a STEM faculty member. All other non-core classes and elective courses are a result of collaboration with the LEE faculty.
NESA and STEM students are part of the LEE student body, and therefore ranked comprehensively within the entire grade level of LEE HS.
