Abstract:
In the fall of 1980, the state opened a public residential high school in Durham, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. The first of its kind in the nation, the school's mission was two-fold: educating the state's most gifted eleventh and twelfth graders in math and science and working with public schools to improve these areas of study for all students. Two classes of 300 were selected representing 63 of the 100 counties and split equally between male and female students. The school's first year successes and potential improvements are reported on in this article.
