2020, honoring excellence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The ranking was
conducted by Newsweek, an American weekly news magazine. You can find our ranking and read the press release here:
Austin Peace Academy students were selected to compete in the international Science and Engineering Fair. High school science
competitions are rigorous and demanding, and doing well on them requires a significant commitment of time and effort, in addition to an
abiding love for the subject. It’s absolutely true that students who succeed in these competitions are more likely to impress admissions officers at top schools
Teachers aim to interweave some or all elements of STEM into project-based work such as design experiments. STEM activities with real life modelling can encourage children to study technical subjects.
Students are involved in developing experiments as part of our annual Science Fair. The hands on and practical component is exciting, engaging and helps students understand visually what it means to make things happen.
