A series of public forums will be held to introduce the community to the Lemon Grove School District's new STEM school.
Slated to open this fall, the Lemon Grove Academy of Sciences and Humanities—formerly Lemon Grove Middle School—is undergoing modernization that will give the campus new science labs and locker rooms, revitalize the lunch court, and provide other upgrades. The school's STEM program will emphasize learning in science, technology, engineering and math.
The transformation is that will also build a new 14,000-square-foot county library for the community. The campus is connected to the city's Recreation Center, which will be used by students for physical education; and Golden Avenue Elementary School, which features medical and oral health clinics run by the University of California, San Diego.
Five presentations will be held over the next couple of weeks, designed to inform parents and the community about the school's mission and vision to prepare students for 21st century careers.
District officials say the curriculum will include an arts program, before- and after-school activities, and leadership training that will teach youngsters to set goals and develop a desire to excel.

All presentations will be held in the school's auditorium starting at 6 p.m.
