The Osceola County School District is on the forefront of preparing the future technical workforce. Construction recently began on the new $75 million STEM-focused high school in Kissimmee. This new school will provide a necessary pipeline of talent for the new 109,000 square-foot facility in Osceola County BRIDG, which will create thousands of high-tech, high wage jobs within ten years of its opening in 2017.
Once completed in 2018, Boggy Creek High School will teach 3,000 students in STEM-related fields, preparing them for future jobs in a high-tech world. The school will directly benefit the Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center, providing a pipeline of needed high-tech and scientific talent.
In addition to the new high school, Osceola County School District has been developing STEM-learning programs for its schools, including the country’s first K-12 mobile STEM lab.
