MST Logo

The Math, Science, and Technology Program at North Garland High School is designed to prepare high achieving students for advancement in an ever-changing, technological world. 

Through interactive multimedia instruction, students are exposed to an integrated curriculum that focuses on problem-solving and practical applications of math and science. This approach is designed to accelerate students in math, science and technology, and better prepare them for college or employment. 

Math Formula

In addition to general coursework in math and science, MST students have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of elective courses within the MST program. Many courses available in the MST program are designated as dual enrollment courses, allowing students to earn both high school and college credit at the same time. After completing a prescribed list of courses, MST students qualify for an endorsement in one or more of the following concentrations:

  • Computer Science
  • Biomedical Science
  • Medical Academic
  • Medical Technical
  • Multimedia Applications
  • Multimedia Broadcast
  • Engineering
  • IT Networking (Telecommunications)
  • Architecture

Each concentration culminates in a "capstone" course. Taken during the senior year, the capstone is designed to give students advanced academic and "real world" experiences by incorporating previous course work from their chosen endorsement.
