ATEMS High School Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math, & Science
RE-DESIGNING HIGH SCHOOL Our economy cant succeed unless our young people have the skills that they need to succeed – and thats whats happening here at Manor New Tech, Mr. Obama said. Weve also got to start rethinking and redesigning Americas high schools. Thats part of whats happening here is theres innovation going on that equips graduates for the demands of a high-tech economy.
RE-DESIGN BEGINS WITH… EDUCATE TEXAS T-STEM Academies ATEMS High School (2009) Early College Initiative T-STEM Center – Texas Tech University NEW TECH NETWORK Project Based Learning Technology Culture
T-STEM Academy Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math & Science (A.T.E.M.S.) Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Pre-Engineering Pathway Project Lead the Way PLTW Certified School Information Technology Pathway Adobe Creative Suite certifications Computer Science and Information Technology dual credit opportunities through TSTC, ACU, McMurry, and HSU.
New Tech Network Over 115 New Tech Network High Schools across the U.S. A.T.E.M.S. High School is one of 15 NTN high schools in Texas.
New Tech Network Project Based Learning 21 st Century Skills Collaboration, Communication, Agency, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Innovation, etc… Technology 1-to-1 computer to student ratio BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Culture ~ Agency Trust, Respect, Responsibility Rigor, Relevance, Relationships

OUR APPROACH Two-tiered approach to educating our students: The Foundational Experience 9 th and 10 th grade years Pre-AP curriculum in every core subject. Heavy project based learning experience. The College Prep Experience 11 th and 12 th grade years AP curriculum in most every core subject. Less project based learning, but more AP-directed instruction or dual credit opportunities. =COLLEGE READY FOUNDATIONAL EXPERIENCE +COLLEGE PREP EXPERIENCE
PRE-ENGINEERING PATHWAY *PROJECT LEAD THE WAY IS THE NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CURRICULUM THAT IS UTILIZED ON OUR CAMPUS IN THE PRE-ENGINEERING PATHWAY. *SENIOR CAPSTONE PROJECT IS REQUIRED IN THE 4 TH YEAR OF ENGINEERING.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PATHWAY *SENIOR CAPSTONE PROJECT IS REQUIRED IN THE 4 TH YEAR OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY.
