Hello SciTech Family!

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. - Anatole France.

 SciTech students and staff have once again accomplished great things because we dared to dream, plan and believe. 

We continue to accomplish great things as a SciTech Family. We know that this upcoming school year will be even greater.

Please take the time to review the back to school packet and return the forms promptly to the students mentoring teachers. Students will not receive a laptop unless all forms are received.

Again, we are ready to move forward in greatness for the 2018-2019 school year! We look forward to what is yet to come in partnership with all our SciTech Family.

We are the Mighty SciTech…Taking iT To the Next Level!
