Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, Energy and Entrepreneurship
STEM schools are not Charter Schools, they fall under their own set of laws (Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3326).
Valley STEM specifically is focused around student interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields of study or careers that are heavy in those areas. All courses are graded on mastery of skills and competencies. Students either “master” the skill or they work towards mastery. At the end of the year if they master the majority of the skills in the class they receive an A. Course grades are not based off of quarter grades. The instruction they receive will be based on what they need and what they are ready to learn. Students that master courses receive an A for the course. Students that do not master the course continue to work on the material until they do master it.
