NEISD AP STEM programs receive $2.7 million grant

North East ISD’s International School of the Americas (ISA), Roosevelt, Reagan, Johnson, Churchill, Legacy of Educational Excellence (LEE), Madison and MacArthur high schools are benefiting from grants totally $2.7 million from the Department of Defense STEM program (DoD STEM). The funds are being used to enhance teacher training and provide engaging learning opportunities for students pursuing advanced placement (AP) STEM coursework.

The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) launched its College Readiness Program in partnership with all North East ISD high schools, military-connected schools serving Joint Base San Antonio, with dedicated funding from DoD STEM.

“The pandemic created many educational challenges for our students, and even more so for the military families we serve already dealing with significant change,” said Dr. Sean Maika, NEISD Superintendent of Schools. “NEISD wants to create systems for students and teachers so that all families receive the support they need, especially when pursuing advanced curriculum opportunities. I am excited that each of our eight high school AP STEM programs will benefit from this grant.”
