MAGNET PROGRAM

Welcome to the University of Rex Mill Middle STEM School Magnet Program! 

We are so excited to welcome our new scholars to the University of Rex Mill Middle STEM School Magnet Program for the 2019-2020 school year! Our goal is to ensure that ALL students are exposed to a rich and rigorous STEM Curriculum, through innovative instruction and real world application. As a school, we are continuing to STEMulate an environment of High Performance because #itswhatwedo and #itallmatters.  

Our Approach:  

Rex Mill Middle STEM School's approach is to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into all aspects of learning, including reading, writing and social studies.  All of our students are actively engaged in hands-on-science and math activities in their classrooms, which are supported by our innovative resource labs.  Through these hands-on experiences, our students consistently develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking and collaborating with peers.
