Welcome to the Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics Magnet Program of George Washington Carver High School. The STEM Magnet Program is a program designed to equip our youth with the skills needed to be proficient and prepared for a post-secondary study and the 21st century workforce. Integrating the four composite areas of science, technology, engineering and math will ensure that our students can solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and analyze information.
The STEM Magnet Program is a rigorous, project-based program but also includes educational field trips that offer our students opportunities to learn more about STEM related careers. Each magnet student is to fulfill all magnet requirements as well as participate in extracurricular and community activities. Here at George Washington Carver High School, we believe that communication is the key to a successful experience and together parents/guardians, students and teachers will be more successful when we work as a team.

The purpose of our STEM Magnet students completing this project is to increase both teaching and learning. Students are required to complete a culminating project, as one of the requirements to fulfill gaining their STEM diploma seal. The project provides an opportunity for students to explore an interest of topic in the areas of Science, Technology, or Mathematics. By completing the project, students have a real-life experience that can help them in their next adventure in life (college, job, entrepreneurship, military, internship, etc.).
The application for our magnet program is available through the button below.
