The Skyview Science, Math and Technology Magnet, or SMTM, is dedicated to providing a challenging academic program that prepares students for college-level study while letting them participate in a traditional high school experience. The program focuses on the integration of rigorous science, math and technology content to solve difficult problems using a hands-on approach. Skyview’s SMTM also offers Project Lead The Way pre-engineering, computer science courses, including video game programming courses. These courses emphasize problem-solving skills and design processes used by engineers and programmers that are incorporated with state-of-the-art technology and hands-on projects.
Advanced Placement (college-level) science and math classes are also offered to earn college credit for universities within the United States. Individual and group research, design projects and academic competitions allow students to experience the challenges of their future careers. If a student is considering a career with a foundation in science, engineering, technology or math, then successful participation in the Skyview SMTM will ensure them the necessary coursework to build a competitive transcript when applying for admission to future programs, colleges and universities.
