Science and Technology Learning Focus

The Science and Technology Pathway/Focus provides a valuable academic and hands on opportunity for students to enrich their learning. Students are grouped into cohorts in the study of subjects with an emphasis on the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) mindset. CHHS is proud to be the only high school in the city that offers this opportunity.

What is Science and Technology Learning Focus?

  • Qualified, enthusiastic, and dedicated team of teachers that collaborate to provide students with cross-curricular opportunities
  • A focus on the STEM mindset and real-world problem solving through the anchor Design Thinking for Innovation class.
  • Students acquire the soft skills and habits needed to be successful in the ever-changing workplace. These include improvement in collaboration, problem solving abilities, time management skills and study habits. 
  • Advanced placement courses provide an opportunity for rigorous, challenging and stimulating learning prior to the university experience. 
  • Unique to Advanced Placement, students have the choice of how many AP courses they would like to pursue.
  • The program offers students a menu of options to explore STEM fields in real-world settings that can potentially lead to an internship/apprenticeship or full- or part-time job after graduation and during college.
