Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math & Science 

 
As a 21st century school, ATEMS embraces rigor in both traditional core learning areas and in skills typically not taught as a part of a traditional curriculum. The Academy is a unique school in Abilene ISD and will help revolutionize the educational experience of high school students across the Big Country. The overall goal of ATEMS is not only to increase student achievement in math and science, but also to inspire students by exposing them to rigorous “real world” problems and issues using research-based, proven curriculum. 
The campus is technology-rich, mimicking the workplace where all participants have access to the technological tools they need to complete their work.
 
The campus is fully wireless with a 1:1 computer ratio for all students and facilitators. When projects are completed, external evaluators from a variety of business and education fields come to grade student presentations and final products. All students at the Academy will complete four years of math and science and meet all state requirements for the recommended graduation plan. Upon high school graduation from ATEMS, students will have had the opportunity to accrue at least 30 college hours and participate in capstone or internships with local businesses.
