About Pee Dee Math, Science and Technology Academy:
Pee Dee Math, Science, and Technology Academy is located in Bishopville, SC. The concept of PDMSTA was formed by a group of parents, teachers, and community leaders within the Lee County area. Subsequently, a planning committee was formed to develop a strategy and plan. PDMSTA is organized to bring a creative solution to the Lee County area by providing an alternative approach to learning.
The mission is to develop innovative, confident, and self-motivated citizens through science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum enhanced with collaborative community learning partnerships. This mission will be successfully accomplished by providing each child the opportunity to maximize their potential through an enhanced curriculum in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Based on the growing need for individuals that are critical thinkers and innovators in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math a STEM curriculum is what Lee County needs to bolster its graduation rate and post-secondary degree-seeking percentages.
Moreover, students of PDMSTA are a microcosm of a national trend of a decreasing interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.
