Iowa STEM BEST Program
Iowa STEM BEST Program
(Businesses Engaging Students & Teachers)
Awarded in NC Region
We would like to congratulate Story County Consortium for being chosen by the STEM Council’s executive committee for the STEM BEST (Businesses Engaging Students and Teachers) award. By collaborating with business stakeholders, these awardees describe how they plan to bridge these two cultures through education programing.
  • Story County Consortium‘s STEM curriculum will affect seven school districts (Ames, Ballard, Collins-Maxwell, Colo-NESCO, Gilbert, Nevada and Roland-Story). They plan to partner with Des Moines Area Community College, the Ames Chamber of Commerce, Ames Economic Development Commission and multiple Story County business to help implement problem-based and interdisciplinary STEM curriculum in order to meet the community’s education and economic development needs.

Welcome to Gilbert High School

At Gilbert High School, we are dedicated to helping Every Student Every Day succeed by putting our vision into action.  The daily actions of all staff and students create a culture of encouragement and pride through the active application of our Vision pillars: Respect, Integrity, Growth and Pride.  Our staff currently serves over 450 students in grades 9-12.  Our growing district seeks to offer outstanding programs and learning opportunities, while maintaining a small-school feel. Modern facilities, a one-to-one laptop initiative, an emphasis on project-based learning and many school-sponsored clubs make GHS a great place to go to school.  GHS was awarded the 2014 Blue Ribbon Schools Award by the United States Department of Education and received an exceptional rating on the new Iowa Report Card. Only 3% of high schools in Iowa received this high of rating.  At GHS, we believe Every Student, Every Day is the key to our success.
