OPCSD STEM Education
STEM in the Orchard Park Central School District consists of a conglomeration of classes relevant to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This may start with the advanced OPMS Technology Education students, or in other grade levels at OPHS and continues throughout their high school career. The STEM curriculum is a collaborative effort created by the Science, Technology Education, and Mathematics departments, and is supported by practicing professionals in the field. Courses in these subject areas have been designed specifically in order to advance the study of engineering. Students, who choose this course of study as part of their comprehensive high school education, will explore various careers in engineering allowing them to distinguish a specific career path after high school. This is not a tracked program; rather, the goal of this program is to prepare students for entry into a two-year, four-year or five-year college engineering program.
