Fifth Grade Families – STEM Middle School Information

STEM Middle School would like to thank everyone for their interest in attending our school for the 2019-2020 school year.  To answer the most popular question we hear, there is no application process in order to be considered for STEM for those students who attend Dearborn Public Schools; instead, invitations will be sent out to all those 5th grade students in the district that are found to be eligible.  To be eligible students must have the following:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP.

Our hope is to have invitations sent out to all eligible 5th grade students by the end of February.  From there, students who receive an invitation and indicate that they are interested in actually attending STEM in the fall, will be selected by lottery.  We will accept a final number of 60 students in to our 2019-2020 6th grade class.

If you live within the Dearborn Public Schools, and do not currently attend a Dearborn Public School, OR you are currently a 6th or 7th grader and would like to apply for a POSSIBLE empty slot, an application will be available on the STEM Middle School website (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/) under the tab “ADMISSIONS” starting in mid-February.   Invitations will be sent out to grade students that meet the below standards:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP

Once again, thank you for your interest in STEM Middle School – a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School for Academic Excellence.

DPS closed Wed. Jan. 30

A message sent on behalf of Superintendent Maleyko-

Due to extreme temperatures and wind chills all Dearborn Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.

If weather conditions persist as predicted, the district will most likely remain closed. However, a decision on the status of school for Thursday will be made at a later time and most likely shared with the community on Wednesday.

Please be careful and dress appropriately if you are headed outside.

NO After School Activities Tues. Jan. 29

After school activities alert

[NOTICE]  Due to extremely cold temperatures and wind chills, all after school activities for Tuesday, January 29, 2019 are cancelled.  This includes all parent meetings, concerts, athletic competitions and practices.  Adult and Community Education classes will also be closed this evening (1/29/19).

The District will make an announcement later today regarding the status of school on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.

School Board Appreciation Month

Trustees recognized during Board Appreciation MonthSchool board smaller 2019

As part of School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko took time at the January 14, 2019 School Board meeting to thank the Trustees for their service to the community.

“School Board Trustees dedicate a lot of time sharing their expertise to benefit the students and families of our district.  They are very knowledgeable about the workings of our district and the latest issues impacting education.  As superintendent, I truly appreciate the diversity of experience and professionalism our trustees bring to the table,” commented Maleyko.

School Board members in Dearborn develop policies and make tough decisions that help shape the future of instruction in the district. They bear responsibility for the third largest district in Michigan with an annual budget of more than $200 million, an enrollment of 21,000 students, and 2,600 employees working in 34 buildings.

In addition, Dearborn School Board trustees also serve as trustees for Henry Ford College. They are the only school board trustees in the state that also serve as trustees for a local college.  This dual responsibility means trustees spend twice the amount of time dedicated to serving the community.   They evaluate both the superintendent and college president, attend twice the number of meetings, and must keep abreast of issues, laws, and legislation impacting both P-12 and the college.
