Madison Highland Prep’s Plans and Mission: Madison Prep is a STEM college preparatory, charter high school serving grades 9 through 12. Madison Highland Prep opened its doors on August 5, 2014. Madison Highland Prep’s purpose is to offer families a high quality Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) college-preparatory high school. MHP features a rigorous academic program with an emphasis on 21st century preparation defined by critical thinking and inquiry learning. STEM Focus: Madison Highland Prep’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math focus establishes a unique and high demand focus since only a small fraction of Arizona college graduates, 8.9%, enters STEM fields (U.S. Dept. of Education, 2011). MHP’s partnership with Project Lead the Way (PLTW) provides Pathway to Engineering courses that explore the design process and link STEM principles to relevant problem-solving activities. The PLTW program engages students in activities, projects, and problem-based learning, which provide hands-on classroom experiences. MHP’s students create, design, build, discover, collaborate and solve problems while applying what they learn in math and science. They are exposed to STEM fields through professionals from local industries who supplement the real-world aspect of the curriculum through mentorships and workplace experiences. College and Career Readiness: Madison Highland Prep believes that college and career readiness are two of the most important determinants of a school’s success and may be measured by a school’s ability to transition its graduates to post-secondary education without remediation. MHP believes that the best way to ensure that their students acquire these skills is through exposure to a rigorous curriculum. MHP’s rigorous curriculum includes honors and advanced placement (AP) classes since students who participate in the curriculum have increased high school graduation and college completion rates over those who do not.
