      Hi,
      My son got offered today and we need to take a decision. He currently goes to Skinner West Neighborhood program. Any information about the school would be helpful.
      Thanks

      Sorry this reply is obviously too late to help the original poster but for future reference: I have had kids in both schools.  They are very comparable academically and both are good schools.  For K-5, STEM is a bit better in Computer Science, Science and Math.  But Skinner is strong academically all around.  STEM is capped at 28 kids per class and is a smaller school community.  It is more diverse, pulling kids from many neighborhoods.  Skinner has more opportunities in grades 7-8 than STEM – at STEM many kids leave for the Academic Centers so the jr high program is small, and does not have as many offerings as Skinner.   Skinner’s school culture is a bit more casual than STEM in terms of classroom / hallway discpline and also STEM has uniforms.  I don’t think you’d go wrong with either program.
