STEM programming uses science, technology, engineering and math to bring relevance to student work and make connections to society and the global world we live in. Adams 12 Five Star Schools prioritizes STEM programming and is proud to offer diverse STEM options throughout the district.
Five Star STEM Schools
All students who attend a Five Star STEM School receive STEM experiences in all their classes, activities and clubs. The district is the proud home to three Five Star STEM Schools:

How Five Star STEM Schools are special:
- All students in all classes are presented with authentic problems to solve. They need to present their solutions to panels of industry experts for feedback.
- Engineering is an elective/special from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
- All freshmen take physics (general physics, CP physics, or AP Physics 1) their freshman year.
