Building a New School

Welcome to my first blog post about Paul Duke STEM High School. Things are really hopping here at Paul Duke STEM HS. Norcross HS Principal Will Bishop and myself have been making the rounds to our cluster middle schools ensuring that students and parents have a good understanding of their options when it comes to high school. We also have been meeting with current Norcross students. As a result, interest in our new school has ramped up and we are fielding lots of questions as we also have been collected letters of intent from prospective students. And don't forget that now that our website... be sure to check back often for school updates and important dates.

Another key event that recently took place involves our Advisory Team... a group that has been guiding the school district's work in developing this school. I was so proud to take this group on a tour of the new school on December 6. Although it is still under construction, I wanted to be able to share a preview of all that we will offer to students with some of the community and business leaders who have taken such an active role in our new school. This group includes the mayors of both Norcross and Peachtree Corners, as well as business and community leaders who have a vested interest in Norcross and in the technology field. Working together we are creating a curriculum and culture for Paul Duke STEM HS that will benefit students for years to come. Below are pictures from the tour that will give you a sneak peak at this world-class facility. I can't wait until the keys are handed over and we can hold an open house for our community!
