Reynoldsburg City Schools

Over the course of the past few years, Reynoldsburg City Schools has launched a K-12 STEM initiative, which now serves more than 2,000 students and is among the largest in the country. This STEM program has gained national attention and the district recently was invited to join the national League of Innovative Schools, partly because of its work in STEM education.

eSTEM Academy

As a demonstration STEM school for the State of Ohio, eSTEM Academy focuses the academic preparation of students on environmental science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Students experience an enriched college preparatory curriculum that includes internship and capstone research experiences in one of the following STEM pathways: Innovations in Material Sciences, Design Engineering, E3 (Environment, Energy and the Economy) and Logistics and Informatics. Ninety-three percent of the Class of 2012 have completed one or more AP Courses or Post-Secondary Enrollment Options with Columbus State Community College, The Ohio State University, or Ohio University. eSTEM’s AP offerings include: AP Calculus AB & BC, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Language & Composition, AP Physics, AP Microeconomics, and AP Government.

The delivery methodology is problem based and focuses on the development of critical thinking, creativity, and confidence in STEM.
