AdvancED STEM Certification

Moore Intermediate School students and staff celebrate the school's AdvancED STEM Certification.

FLORENCE, S.C. – John W. Moore Intermediate School has earned the nationwide distinction of becoming an AdvancED STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Certified School.

To earn STEM certification, the school had to demonstrate compliance with the AdvancED STEM Standards as reflected by the school's performance across 11 rigorous STEM indicators.

Prior to the STEM review, the staff at Moore submitted evidence of their ability to provide inquiry-based learning for the students.  In addition, the staff at Moore had to prove that STEM learning for the students reaches beyond the school day and integrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics into the total learning process. The school emphasized its STEM program practices to the AdvancED STEM Certification team that recently visited the school.

“The staff at Moore has worked hard to demonstrate its commitment in preparing students to become college and career ready,” said Carol Schweitz, John W. Moore principal.   “We also appreciate our parents and community members who supported us throughout the certification process.”
