Delta High School was launched as a unique collaboration between the Kennewick, Pasco and Richland School Districts; Battelle; Washington State University Tri-Cities; Columbia Basin College, and the Washington State STEM Education Foundation to offer a highly-personalized STEM education program.
Delta is a small, public, high school for students of all academic levels and interests, who want be immersed in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning experiences. With no special admissions requirements, any entering 9th-grade student from our partnering school districts can apply.
The Delta approach is changing education. Partnerships with local STEM professionals allow Delta students to connect academic learning to the world beyond the classroom. Learning parallels how scientists, engineers, and mathematicians conduct inquiries and solve problems.
As a designated Innovative School, by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Delta High School will not only help to transform the way STEM subjects are taught in the Mid-Columbia, but will also be a cornerstone for future economic growth and development.
Delta High put the Mid-Columbia on the STEM map and led the way for numerous local STEM schools and STEM programs within schools that have followed. The outstanding STEM offerings at Columbia Basin College and Washington State University-Tri-Cities are the capstones of our local STEM education portfolio.
