The PROMISE and Excel programs are for students in 7th-9th grade focusing on students interested in STEM from culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse backgrounds. The PROMISE and Excel programs run both during the school year and summer for a variety of enrichment opportunities. We will be discussing the history, current focus, and future of the program as well as the successes and positive failures we have experienced as administrators and teachers of the program. We will also be discussing the development of the IMSA students used as mentors within the program.
