We can’t leave out your favorite social media app. What about chocolate? (Yes, chocolate!) Roller coasters. Special effects in movies. The list is endless, growing every single day.
We are proud to offer a competitive STEM Honors Program at three of our schools: Hardy Williams High, Gratz Prep Middle and Simon Gratz High. And we’ll soon have two STEM labs at Mastery High School of Camden.
