Welcome to the iSTEM TEAM,

Mrs. Tamee Haines Tucker, Chief Academic Officer!

She comes with a wealth of experience and STEM knowledge that will continue the successes of
iSTEM Early College High School.

Greetings iSTEM Family (students, parents/guardians), business partners, and community members-

The first year of iSTEM has come to a successful close due to the myriad of partnerships that have supported us in all of our adventures.  iSTEM is a success because of all of the outside support from YOU!  THANK YOU!

The theme of discovery was evident throughout our first year and will continue as we mature...maturing as a school district, maturing as professionals, maturing as students, and maturing as community members.  We understand the need to be positive contributors to our community and will continue to grow and provide for this as iSTEM continues to evolve.

As the Founding and Interim Superintendent of iSTEM Geauga Early College High School my departure is bitter sweet.  The foundation of the school, the mission and vision of the school, and the path of success for the iSTEM students has been set and it will continue.

I look forward to learning about the future successes of iSTEM!  

With a sincere and heartfelt goodbye,
