“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.

Ninth Grade EnglishHave you ever wondered what separates a person we call genius from one we merely call smart? Often, the distinction is not only having a brilliant idea that no one else has ever thought of before, but having the ability to clearly and precisely share that idea with the world. Without the ability to read, write, listen, and speak effectively, we are limited in our ability to create and share ideas with one another. These language arts skills are of course important to reading stories and writing essays, but they are also critical to improving how you think, learn, and understand science, technology, engineering, math, and social studies. This year you will learn how to be aware of yourself and others as readers and writers and how to navigate and adapt your reading and writing processes for various texts, situations, audiences, and purposes. You will use this learning to communicate and connect your thinking and learning from Science, Technology, Math, and Social Studies.
IntegrationDelta is a STEM school. That means that we have a strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
