About Us

STEM at Showalter is an engaging and challenging school that currently serves grades 7-12.

Our school is designed to prepare students for 21st century careers in the sciences and in engineering.  The philosophy behind the program is to provide students with a unique opportunity to learn through traditional and non-traditional teaching methodologies. Teaching and learning will have a heavy emphasis on project based learning, experimentation, hands on activities, and research.

In addition to our engaging curriculum, we also offer comprehensive interventions to ensure that students are successful on state assessments and the SAT.  When you consider the multitude of extra-curricular activities and our very aggressive and comprehensive college and career counseling program, we think that you will discover that our academic program is second to none.

We invite you to visit our campus and learn more about the great things that happen at our school every day.
