HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2014–15

Meitler ConsultantsDuring 2014-2015, Meitler Consultants ofMilwaukee, Wisconsin, completed a demographicsurvey for the elementary schools in the Diocese ofPaterson. The purpose of the survey was to identifyenrollment trends for elementary education in theDiocese. Information was identified about popula tionby age, Catholics as a percent of population in variousareas of the Diocese, parish data, and the locationsfrom which each school is drawing its currentenrollment. The data gathered will help schools in the process of strategic planning for the future.

Hear what two principals, a studentand parent say about the STEMprogram in our schools:n “Grounded in Catholic values, STEM

education provides students of allgrade levels with a global platformfor authentic learning and exper -iences that will prepare them forfuture studies and careers of thenext generation.” — principal

n “One of our students, who is now ajunior at a Catholic Girls’ High School,is pursuing a career in engin eeringbecause of our STEM pro gram. Shewas in 8th grade the first year ofSTEM implementation. Her wholeattitude about Science changed, fromlittle interest to loving it.” — principal

n “The STEM program at St. Rose hasdefinitely guided Tommy in what he

wants to do in the future. As of now,his plans are to major in Engineeringand become some sort of a mechan i -cal engineer. It’s a great program andSt. Rose should continue it.” — parent

n “The STEM program inspired me tobe who I am today. I was alwaysinterested in science but theactivities we performed then, arewhat really expanded my horizons.

Whether wewere dis sec -ting a wormor creating aballoon powered car, the labs wereinteres ting, fun and most impor -tantly edu cational. They solidified mylove of science and helped merealize I want to be an engineer inmy future.” — student
