Dear Incoming Class of 2023,

Welcome to the Dock Street School for S.T.E.A.M. Studies, “Where college begins.” The Dock Street School provides a rigorous college-preparatory education with a strong emphasis on science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M). We have been in preparation to provide that and more. We are in great anticipation of your arrival and cannot wait to get to know our new students. We are committed to making your transition from elementary school to middle school a seamless one. To facilitate a smooth transition, we would like to invite you to our Virtual Meet & Greet on Monday, June 22nd, 2020.

You will have the opportunity to get acquainted with our school administration, faculty and PTA board members. You will also receive information regarding:

• Curriculum & Course Offerings

Communications with details for this event will be distributed soon. We hope that you are excelling at Remote Learning and that you are keeping yourselves safe.

Dr. Vaughan
