Project-based learning

The back wing of Northern Vance High School is sectioned off with a “STEM students only” sign in a corridor, and the halls still smell of fresh paint.

The science, technology, engineering and math middle school housed there is officially open for operation.

The program started in 2012 on the first floor of the back of Northern. About 200 sixth- and seventh-graders participated last year.

This year, the program became a full-fledged middle school recognized by the state.
