Highlands High School has offered a Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Magnet Program since 1989. The majority of students who have been in the program have advanced to university programs with a similar emphasis. We are proud of the past accomplishments of our former and current Magnet students and are excited to continue our legacy as the Engineering Institute.
Today’s Magnet Program prepares students for a post-secondary education or training experience, including study at two- and four-year institutions leading to a post-secondary credential (i.e., a certificate, license, Associates or Bachelor’s degree). Our goal is to offer a unique, comprehensive college preparatory program emphasizing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-related fields. Specifically, we have narrowed the focus of the magnet to the fields of engineering and computer science, including programming and networking.
The Engineering Institute at Highlands High School aims to inspire and prepare scholars in Engineering and Computer Science by providing enhanced curriculum, extra-curricular opportunities, and individualized support for college and career success in high-demand STEM fields.
The Engineering Institute focuses on career skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as well as their application to Engineering and Computer Science. Your math and science knowledge will be used daily as you work in teams to take part in creative projects designed to challenge and teach you necessary problem solving skills. Learn through hands-on projects such as building architecture models, constructing robots, designing computers, writing and editing in various programming languages, and competing locally and nationally against other students.
