About the John C. Dunham STEM Partnership School at Aurora University

The John C. Dunham STEM Partnership School will be an innovative multi-district partnership school on the Aurora University campus opening in fall 2014. The school will serve approximately 200 students in the Aurora East, Aurora West, Indian Prairie and Oswego school districts and train teachers who will return to their home school districts as leaders in mathematics and science education. The STEM partnership school will prepare the community’s talented young learners in ways that will ignite their interest in mathematics and science. Equally important is the opportunity to develop the school as a model center for teacher preparation, faculty development and educational research.
