Let start with, my son has attend this school since it's first year. He is now a freshman. He is happy, engaged,and learning.We love it. Minus last semester Spanish class.I have a hard time reading a scathing review from a "teacher" who work at the school less than 6 months, has no patience for special needs children and failed to mention the large amount of GT kids that also attend STEM. Maybe a different career path!? STEM is not for every child. But as a parent of a kid (soon to be two) attending the school, I would take the words of actual parents over a disgruntled ex employee.

A [Edited by admin] poor school that has no business opening its doors. I was a Spanish teacher who was fired because I failed to give every student an "A" or a "B". They claim to have 'rigorous, relevant" education and yet, most of the teachers are bullied and indirectly threatened to give good grades or leave. Half of the students are on a SPED plan or a 504. Half cannot read or write. Where is the taxpayer justice in letting a school open its doors when administrators lie and cheat. I was told to NOT input final grades because according to a student "[Edited by admin] was going to change them". I thought grades were a legal document. It is clear that if a student's parents donate a lot of money the student will be "successful". We'll see what happens when they try to go to college. I will be laughing all the way. DO NOT send your child to STEM...it is a sham and a lie and it needs honest leadership with a director who is interested in the kids and not just the federal money that the school gets for having a warm body in the seat...project based learning cannot succeed unless the kid knows how to read and write and spell and THINK...none of which is taught at STEM.

This was a good fit for our "good" kid who loves and thrives at school. However, this school failed miserably on nearly every front regarding our more "free-spirited" kid. This is a new school that after the inaugural year, ousted the founders (the founders are brilliant, they are the fire behind this idea). They replaced them with inexperienced leadership and a bureaucratic cast of power-hungry so-called "educators". So, they are revamping the mission because they sure are not following the one the founders intended. As they try to find their actual "place" and how they want to run "officially", they are in the meantime hiring FIRST YEAR teachers who do not know what they are doing. First year teachers can be great, but NOT at a school that is still developing its policies, procedures, and overall definition. MOST of these first-year teachers are SO BAD, that even my "good" kid, who LOVED and THRIVED at this school wanted OUT. We have enrolled both of our kids next year (for the first time ever) in traditional public schools instead of private. That is how negative our second year with this school was. This school does not know what they are doing...from the head of the school to the teachers. It's a shame what negative impact this has had on both of my kids.
