Baltimore County considers new STEM school
Baltimore County school officials are exploring the possibility of building a science and math school for grades kindergarten through eighth grade in the northwest area, which would be the first school of its kind in the county. The school, which is still in the conceptual stage, would help to relieve overcrowding in the elementary grades in that area as well as provide a more concentrated focus on subjects that state and national leaders say are important to making the country economically competitive. State education leaders are currently setting up numerous programs in the science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, subjects. Across the state, several other districts have started STEM schools.
