GSMST is a charter school offering students an opportunity to study in three broad areas of focus: bioscience, engineering and emerging technologies.
The rigorous coursework at GSMST may not meet the needs or interests of all students. As this is a school of choice, it is highly recommended that parents and students review the school”s curriculum and learn more about the offerings before making a decision to register.
