Certified STEM!

posted Mar 6, 2014, 6:43 AM by Michael Reilly
We just received word this morning that the State of Georgia has named CDAT as the first traditional public high school certified STEM Program!  There are only about 4 others, and all are charter or magnet.  We are so very proud of our students, teachers, and thankful for the County and administrative support.

What does this mean?  It means that authentic, creative and efficient learning has been reviewed by our State educational authorities, and they confirm that it is genuine and effective.  It means that a public high school can listen to some teachers with an idea that brings in the interests of students and community, and it can create a successful environment without spending big bucks on packaged systems, or demanding some type of filtering of students.   CDAT has always taken any student, from significant special needs to the highest level of gifted, and we will continue to do so.

PBL is real ladies and gentlemen, and we have the certification to prove it!
