What is the STEM School of Excellence Recognition Program?


ITEEA’s STEM Center for Teaching and Learning™ recognizes outstanding schools for their commitment to providing a robust Integrative STEM education program. Schools recognized exemplify outstanding leadership in the field of STEM education. Recognized schools undergo a rigorous application process requiring detailed documentation to demonstrate a strong Integrative STEM program. A panel of reviewers will reach consensus that the documented evidence represents excellence in Integrative STEM education.

ITEEA created the designation as a way to officially recognize those schools whose teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders are providing a meaningful STEM education experience for students. By highlighting these schools, ITEEA hopes to help others learn effective best practices and continue sharing them more broadly into the larger STEM Education community.
