Service to the Community
All research shows the same thing in this area: when teens volunteer their time in service to others, it reduces anxiety and depression. Many schools talk about citizenship, but at STEM, it is a requirement! Students are given multiple opportunities to serve others, first within our own building and then out in the community. This is a foundation of the student experience at STEM. We also encourage our parents to lead by example and spend time serving our STEM Community as well!
