BSD has been selected as a 2017 Superstars in Education award winner for our high school STEM program. Superstars in Education, sponsored by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce, recognizes outstanding educational programs and highlights excellence in innovative teaching, integrated classroom technology practices, and school-to-career pathways. Brandywine, Concord, and Mount Pleasant are being recognized for reimagining our high school STEM course offerings to focus particularly on engineering. STEM classes at all three high schools were designed to engage students in creative, rigorous learning experiences that were complementary to the current science and math programs in the District. As a result, BSD has increased the number of underrepresented groups and pathway completion rates and raised achievement scores for students enrolled in these STEM courses.
