STEM Magnet at Annie Fisher School offers an advanced academic program focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Students participate in an academically challenging curriculum with rigorous science and math instruction. Teachers use an innovative, hands-on inquiry approach for instruction in all content areas. Students observe and ask questions, create and conduct their own investigations, analyze data to draw conclusions and communicate their findings to others.

Students at STEM receive not only a state-of-the-art education, but they are also immersed in a nurturing, collaborative environment built on a partnership between home, school and community. Upon completion of the 8th grade, students are offered a preference into the University High School of Science and Engineering.
