What if there was a School where curiosity RULED?

We are that School! 

The Hawthorne High School of Manufacturing and Engineering Program (HHSME) is a sequence of courses, which follows proven hands on, real world, problem-solving approach to learning. HHSME is tasked with creating the next generation workforce.

Throughout HHSME, students learn and apply the design process, acquire strong teamwork and communication proficiency and develop organizational skills. They discover the answers to questions like how things are made and what processes go into creating products?

Students use the same industry-leading design principals and 3D Design Software used by companies like Northrop Grumman, Boeing and Walt Disney Imagineering. They explore the worlds of architecture and product design to appreciate the world they live in, experiment with aerodynamics and biomechanics to understand the world they use, they are trained in state of the art manufacturing labs to create the world they want.

This is STEM education and it is at the heart of our school.
