The National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools (NCSSS) was established in 1988 to provide a forum for specialized secondary schools focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines to exchange information and program ideas.

NCSSS 30th anniversary LOGOCelebrating our 30th anniversary in 2018, the Consortium now includes approximately 100 member schools (high schools), many ‘ranked’ as the best in the country, along with 55 affiliate members (colleges, universities, summer programs, foundations, and corporations) located in 32 states, that share the goals of transforming mathematics, science, and technology education.

Our Beliefs

The National Consortium of Specialized STEM Schools believes that:

  • Each person has intrinsic worth.
  • Nurturing creativity is essential for expanding human potential.
  • People develop best in communities that are safe, compassionate, and open-minded.
  • Honesty and integrity are essential elements for healthy human relationships.
  • Learning is a lifelong process.
  • People have the responsibility to care for the environment.
  • In all areas of human endeavor, the search for truth is a worthy pursuit.
  • Appreciation of cultural diversities is essential for people to participate in a global community.
  • Individual potential is independent of gender, race, and socioeconomic status.

Our Strategies

  1. We will establish, develop, and support collaborative projects which will further the Consortium's commitment to transform mathematics, science and technology teaching and learning.
  2. We will promote exemplary educational programs.
  3. We will contribute to the development of national policy related to mathematics, science, and technology teaching and learning.
  4. We will explore emerging ideas, research, and practices in mathematics, science and technology.
  5. We will provide mechanisms to gather and disseminate information.
  6. We will recruit, maintain, and inform members and encourage active participation.
  7. We will actively pursue financial support for the Consortium.
