Why a STEM High School?
The creation of what will become Long Island's first high school focused on STEM instruction is a direct response to the realization that our region's future will be built on technological leadership, knowledge creation and innovation. STEM education has been cited by educational, civic and governmental leaders alike as a linchpin in the long-term vitality of the Long Island region. As noted recently by Ken White, manager of the Office of Educational Programs at Brookhaven National Laboratory, during a meeting of the Long Island STEM Hub: "Long Island has many businesses, as well as educational and scientific institutions, that need a technical workforce, but students are not pursuing studies in STEM, and young people are leaving Long Island when good jobs are available here.

The challenges facing Long Island mirror those facing the entire United States, where a serious talent gap among young people in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics exists in comparison with other nations around the world. According to the most recent results available from the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, 15-year-olds in the United States rank 20th in science proficiency and 30th in math proficiency worldwide.
