I wish the Academy system was available at Green Mountain High School when I attended. I have since seen it roll out with my younger siblings, and I am jealous. It seems to be set up more like how a college/university would be set up. I think it definitely helps in funneling your interests into a specific area of learning. If I had that option, then I probably wouldn’t have felt so lost once I got to college. I would have had a sense of what classes I needed to take, and what kind of curriculum is associated with it.
Alex Glose | Class of 2013
I am currently attending CU Boulder. I started out as Computer Science, but switched to Business with my area of emphasis being information and operations management. The Academy system at Green Mountain High School helped me find my true passion in coding. I am also currently considering a fifth year masters in either supply chain or business analytics.

The STEM Academy at Green Mountain High School was helpful to reassure me that I wanted to pursue nanotechnology. All the Academies in general have made me a more well-rounded person, which has prepared me in college (and life in general) because you need all of those skills to be a valuable asset to a company and to succeed in life. Another positive aspect was the networking that I was exposed to, always meeting local technical folks and discussing what they do and such.

I was between wanting to go medical and engineering. The Academy system at Green Mountain High School helped me decide I wanted to go into engineering.

I am an engineer in the community and active in the Denver Metro ACE Mentorship Program. Though I am not a student, parent, teacher, or alum, GMHS has welcomed me into their community. It has been a pleasure to watch the Academy program grow, improve, and contribute to the surrounding STEM community.
