It is with great pride that I let you all know that, as of today, Woodstock High School has officially been recognized as one of only 12 high schools in the State of Georgia to become STEM Certified by the Georgia Department of Education! Woodstock High School is also the first high school in the Cherokee County School District to attain STEM Certification.
As you all know, in Georgia STEM education is defined as an integrated curriculum (as opposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics taught in isolation) that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory project/problem-based learning, and student-centered development of ideas and solutions.
For Woodstock High School, this is the culmination of several years’ worth of planning and implementation on the part of our teachers, parents, business partners, and students. Moving forward this will allow our students who choose to follow one of our STEM pathways to be officially recognized by the state as having completed a certified STEM pathway.
The certification committee today could not stop praising the efforts of Woodstock High School and the opportunities our students have to be part of such a rich experience.
Thank you to ALL of our stakeholders who have supported this endeavor and made this a possibility for our students!
WE ARE WOODSTOCK! WE ARE ALL IN!
