    Dilworth STEM Academy Mission Statement

    The mission of Dilworth STEM Academy is to create a safe, effective, and rigorous learning culture which will provide students with the foundation they need to be college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school.  

    We believe that students learn best through Project-Based Learning which is driven by the combined efforts of students, staff, parents, and the community.



    Dilworth STEM Academy in the 21st Century!


    Students focus on complex hands-on activities to explore different design, construction, programming, and commercial applications relating to STEM and boost their knowledge and application in all of their coursework.  Dilworth students are prepared for high school and beyond!


    We are AVID!


    Dilworth is proud to serve as an up-and-coming AVID school focused on career and college readiness for all students, focusing on WICOR (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading).


    • Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success,

    • Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships,

    • Creates a positive peer group for students,

    • Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination.

    As a result, policymakers and educators now consider AVID's mission to be an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap, making college access and success available to all students.
