November 21, 2019

Newsweek announced its ranking of the top 5,000 STEM high schools for 2019, honoring excellence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. New Glarus High School was named #1,852. In Wisconsin, New Glarus High School was the 38th highest ranked school in Wisconsin and was the highest ranked school in Green County and the Capitol Conference. New Glarus High School offers a wide range of high level math, science, and Project Lead the Way courses for students, including pathways in engineering, biomedical science, and computer science. Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Thayer noted, “We are continually working to provide great experiences for students in the STEM fields, and are pleased to be recognized for our efforts.”

With its long history of reporting on scientific breakthroughs, technological revolutions, and societal challenges, Newsweek partnered with to rank America’s Best STEM High Schools. The list includes schools in every region of the country that offers skilled teachers who keep up with developments in these fields and who create dynamic learning environments to engage their students.

The top 5,000 schools were curated from Educational Research (SER) using a proprietary scoring logic that took into consideration a broad set of quantitative and qualitative data inputs collected from Q2 2015-Q3 2019. The purpose was to determine which primary/secondary institutions in America best offer students experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) - as defined by the Congressional Research Service - while preparing them for post-secondary outcomes. Additional factors, including affluence and median household income, were taken into consideration in compiling the rankings.

“Children don’t realize it, but they’re natural STEM students,” says Nancy Cooper, Newsweek Global Editor in Chief. “We need to make sure that innate drive, curiosity, and creativity aren’t lost along the way. These high schools are helping to ensure America’s future in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is in good hands.”

Newsweek’s November 15th special double issue is available on newsstands now and includes the top 500 STEM high schools. The full list of 5,000 to STEM high schools is available on
