NUAMES at Weber State University Davis

The Northern Utah Academy for Math Engineering and Science (NUAMES) is a public charter high school for students in grades 10-12. The school was started in 2004 to provide an educational experience that prepares high school students for an early transition into a university baccalaureate program in fields related to math, engineering or science. Students who have attended NUAMES for a full year and meet Weber State's admission requirements receive a scholarship to attend the university while they are also completing their high school diploma. Many students earn their associate's degree by the time they graduate.[1] The NUAMES campus is on the Weber State University Davis campus in Layton, Utah. The Principal is Alan Stokes, the Vice Principal is Dave Dau and Deb Hefner is the director of business operations.

Achievements[edit]

In the Utah Comprehensive Accountability System (UCAS) results published in September of 2013, Utah was the highest-scoring high school in Utah with 541 points. It also received a letter grade of "A" in the state grading system. [2]

NUAMES was recognized in 2010 by the U.S. News & World Report as being one of the best high schools in Utah. The publication gave NUAMES its bronze medal rating.[3][4]

The Utah Office of Education gave NUAMES the Closing the Achievement Gap Award in 2010. This award is given to students who make adequate yearly progress in all subjects, and who reduce the achievement gap between different groups of students by at least 50%.[5]

Partners with NUAMES[edit]

NUAMES is a member of the national Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Early College High School Organization and is partnered with the Davis, Ogden, and Weber School districts, Weber State University, the Ogden-Weber Applied Technology College, and the Davis Applied Technology College.
