“The incredible new school, offersan infinite number of great possibilities.”
The most noticeable feature of Delta High School is its teachers, an interactive team that enables all students to succeed in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Simply apply to be a part of it all!
Thinking different to achieve excellence, as well as life skills.
Delta is a STEM high school, meaning the way students learn, as well as what they learn, reflects the world we live in - a world driven by science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), combined with other subjects.
Making real-world connections.
Guided by caring teachers, students participate in customized, hands-on learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. Through their own self-directed learning, students create a culture of creativity, exploration, and innovation.

Jim received his Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Arts from Colorado State University in 1975 and his Master of Education degree in 1993 from Heritage College. He served as Peace Corps Volunteer teaching Industrial Arts on the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia in the West Indies for three years before settling in the Tri-Cities. Jim’s previous local teaching experience includes Technology Education at Desert Hills Middle School and Engineering Technology at Southridge High School. He has been teaching for over 30 years. Jim has made numerous presentations throughout the State of Washington and the United States on topics in Technology and Engineering Education over the last 22 years. Several of Jim’s summers have been spent engaged in professional research internships with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The professional relationships he has built with STEM professionals during these internships have resulted in a variety of opportunities for his students. Jim has received awards for teaching from a variety of organizations including the International Technology Education Association and the Washington Technology Education Association. In 2000 he received the Crystal Apple Award.
Pre-Engineering is a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering using project based learning format. Students will be engaged in project building, science inquiry, data gathering, analysis, documentation and dissemination of results. During the course students will emulate real world engineering as they think to solve problems and communicate what they are thinking.
IntegrationDelta is a STEM school. That means that we have a strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. English Language Arts and Social Studies are critical pieces of a STEM education. So, here at Delta, we integrate your courses around a common theme (enduring understanding) each Trimester. You will see how Science, Math, English Language Arts, Social Studies are all connected. Integration is central to a Delta education.
