STEM girls as future global leaders
STEM School Highlands Ranch launches empowered and prepared girls. Our graduates make choices about college pathways after their rigorous preparation and experiences. STEM girls know their superpowers and what they wish to pursue in higher education. Is it just STEM or something about the Front Range? This past week was the memorial service honoring the late former Secretary of State, Madeleine Korbel Albright. She grew up on the University of Denver campus while her father founded the Korbel School of International Studies. She was the first female US Secretary of State and the first person to have three presidents speak at her funeral. She was a strong presence for freedom on the world stage. Click here to read more

What we've done and where we're going
Happy Friday! Can you believe that we are almost at the end of the school year? While the excitement begins to build for so many of our students, your administration and leadership teams are staying focused on the important work that still needs to be done.

With a few weeks as Interim Executive Director under my belt, I wanted to share with our community some of the things we’re working on and will be focusing on this summer so that we are ready to go for another great school year. Click here to read more
Mark your calendars for #STEMShares, May 2-7
We want to let you know that we will again focus our efforts on #STEMShares for the week of May 2-7 to commemorate May 7. Since this day will be on a Saturday (no school for students and staff), we wanted to share the following information with you.

We want to invite our entire community to participate in #STEMShares by doing Acts of Kindness, Acts of Service and Acts of Donation. This could include donating to a charity or non-profit organization, volunteering, helping a family member, reaching out to a friend you haven't connected with in a while, or anything else you can think of to provide a moment of connection with others. Click here to read more
