DHS STEM Requirements

This is an addendum to the Dorman High School 2020-2021 Curriculum Guide. It is designed to help STEM students make informed decisions about which courses offered at DFC and DHS are required to remain int eh STEM program and which courses offered at both schools can earn STEM credits. Students need to acquire 11 STEM credits during four years at Dorman to earn a STEM diploma. At least one of the 11 credits must be earned in an engineering course.
