Jackson STEM Academy - This year the Jackson School District is launching a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Academy. This four-year program allows students to choose from three college pathways: Life and Biomedical Sciences; Physical Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering. Studies show that over 70 percent of the nation’s economy is driven by science, technology and invention. The curriculum meets the common core standards and prepares students for PARCC readiness.
In a comparison of New Jersey’s eighth grade NAEP science scores with eighth grade science scores in countries world-wide, only students in three Asian countries score higher than New Jersey public school students.
