STEM Program Background
xxx
Marlborough’s STEM (grades 6-8) and STEM Early College High School (grades 9-12) began in 2010 with the awarding of a federal Race to the Top grant. STEM classes began at the sixth- and ninth-grade levels in Fall 2011, and by 2014 the program was phased into completion grades 6-12. The Class of 2015 was the first graduating class to include Marlborough STEM ECHS program graduates.

Marlborough's thoughtful and thorough implementation of its STEM program earned early recognition from state officials. In September 2011, state education officials and then Governor Deval Patrick visited Marlborough's STEM program in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Race to the Top initiative. 

As Race to the Top funding expired, Marlborough looked to other financial sources to support the program, plus expand many of its features to benefit the Marlborough High School student population at large. Program administrators examined the program’s successes, such as project-based learning, interdisciplinary instruction, a 1:1 technology device initiative and focus on technology as an interdisciplinary tool, and college- and career-specific skill acquisition. When then sought out funding earmarked for 21st Century skill development and college- and career-readiness, particularly for underserved and/or first-time college-goer student populations.

In April 2014, in partnership with Jobs for the Future and the Partnerships for a Skilled Workforce, Marlborough applied for and received one of 24 Youth CareerConnect grants awarded nationwide, with Marlborough receiving $1.8 million over four years.

The resulting Massachusetts Advanced Pathways Program (MAPP) unites state and local employers, educators, and government and nonprofit officials in one overarching goal: to design systems of grades 9-14 STEM career pathways that are aligned with labor market demands and that link rigorous academics with career-focused learning. Our STEM model works to tackle the national issues facing schools and work force development as laid out by the office of the President and federal Department of Labor.
 
The Marlborough Public Schools and its STEM program are grateful to the many community and business organizations that generously support the program with advice, time, expertise, and in-kind and financial contributions.
