Appreciation Overflowing at STEM
Teacher and staff appreciation week at STEM School Highlands Ranch is always one of the highlights of the school year and this year did not disappoint. A very BIG thank you to our amazing PTO and the many other parent volunteers and students who came in on their Sunday to decorate our doors, hallways and lobbies. Our teachers and staff felt so appreciated, loved and surprised by the outpouring of love and support. Click here to read more

Can you believe that we are just two weeks away from the end of the school year? It has been quite a year and I am so amazed by the resiliency of our students, our parents and our staff.
