Community meeting planned for new
STEM-focused high school campus in North Fulton
Fulton County Schools invites parents and community members to a special March 28 meeting to provide input on its new STEM focused high school campus planned for North Fulton. The meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the site of the former Milton High School (now called the Milton Center) in the building's media center.
Scheduled to open by Fall 2020 on the site of the Milton Center, the building will host college and career-focused curriculum pathways with a focus in the areas of Engineering, Healthcare Science, and Information Technology. The community meeting will share information on STEM curriculum pathways and how they can be most beneficial in preparing students for their post-secondary options, whether it be through a two- or four-year college experience or through directly entering the workforce with specialized STEM skills. Earlier this month, as a first step in the engagement process, visioning workshops were held with school leaders, teachers, students, and industry experts in healthcare, information technology, and post-secondary educational institutions to discuss curriculum pathways and how the STEM campus can link the work of students to real world, project-based learning opportunities.

Project Based Learning at AES
All of our students have successfully
participated in their first Project Based Learning (PBL) unit at AES. Students investigated and responded to a
real life problem or challenge. Each
grade level created a different unit based on content standards with a focus on
math. Students shared their knowledge in
multiple ways, ranging from designing a blueprint for the perfect outdoor
classroom space to gathering evidence for a debate, such as, nature vs.
nurture. Click on the link below to
watch an overview of PBL.
