Metro Receives National STEM Certification
STEM CERTIFIED SCHOOLS’ POWERFUL PRACTICES
Metro Early College High School – Columbus, Ohio
STEM Indicator: Community, post-secondary, business/industry partners and/or families actively support and are engaged with teachers and students in the STEM program.
Metro Early College High School students are afforded multiple and on-going opportunities to demonstrate their learning through performance-based assessments, both informally and formally. Gateway presentations, an example of authentic and performance-based assessments, are required for upper level students who are ready to enroll in college courses and graduate from high school. These students must defend their level of preparedness to enroll in college and then, upon completion of the courses, defend their level of success to graduate. Rubrics are used by the adults who attend to assess students during the roundtables and gateway presentations.‹ Back to Blog Archives
