MST @ West Humber is a pre-AP program with an enriched focus in Mathematics, Science and Technology.
Students accepted into the MST program will travel together as a cohort in Grade 9 through 11. The 4 MST courses in grade 9 are Math, English, a course in Technology and Science. In grade 10, MST students will take enriched Math, Science, English and Computer Science. In grade 11, MST students must take at least 2 out of the 3 science courses (Physics, AP Biology or Chemistry) plus Math and English.

Benefits of Program
The program enables MST students to take summer courses prior to starting grades 9 and 10. This allows students to take grade 10 electives in grade 9 and grade 11 courses in grade 10. This acceleration continues in grade 11, which allows students to accumulate more 12U credits, better preparing students for their post-secondary education.
The MST program allows students with similar interests to work together on projects that are hands-on and self-directed. Many challenges and opportunities await MST students such as Math contests, Sci-Tech Fair, Engineering Team, Sci-Squad, field trips and more.
As students progress to Grade 12, their course options increase dramatically to support a wide variety of post-secondary opportunities.
Students cover the curriculum at a faster pace leaving time for enrichment and integration activities, as well as pre-AP preparation.
