Paul Duke STEM High School
Paul Duke STEM High School was established in 2018 in the Norcross Cluster of Gwinnett County Public Schools. As a choice school, students have an incredible opportunity in electing to come to the one and only STEM-themed high school in Gwinnett County Public Schools. There are no special qualifications, requirements, or applications; students only need to live in the cluster or be granted a permissive transfer to attend Paul Duke STEM.
STEM at PDS
Schools choose to present STEM in a variety of ways. Paul Duke STEM engages students in a challenging STEM curriculum, giving them the chance to take courses that are not found at other, traditional high schools. We do that in five ways:
Project Based Learning
Senior Experience and Exhibition
Using Project Based Learning as their primary instructional tool, teachers implore students to use Design Thinking to solve complex and interrelated problems. After navigating a course of study which includes options for nine STEM pathways, over twenty Advanced Placement classes, and a Senior Experience and Exhibition (SEE), students graduate ready for any post-secondary option they choose, whether that's college or career.
At Paul Duke STEM High School, we pride ourselves on providing an outstanding course of study. Our focus is teaching with and through technology, no matter the subject matter. Use the navigation bar to the left to explore department resources and contacts.
