Harrison High School STEM Academy
The Harrison High School STEM Academy is a set of rigorous academic services which is part of Harrison High School’s Gifted and Talented Track. The services provide a tremendous opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the area of STEM. Students will be given meaningful and engaging opportunities to utilize and enhance their technical skills. The National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) guiding principles indicate, "rather than any single gifted program, a continuum of programming services must exist for gifted learners." Harrison High School’s Gifted Services are designed to meet the academic, social/emotional, and behavioral needs of students identified with advanced learning needs. The range of services offered by the Harrison Public School District include pull-out programs, specialized content courses, advanced classes, varied grouping strategies, acceleration, and differentiation of curriculum and instruction in the classroom.
