Welcome to the South Science and Technology Magnet. This historic program began over 30 years ago and is one of only four K-9 Science and Technology schools in the state of Ohio. 

Our staff and students have been recognized for two consecutive years as a High Progress School of Honor by the state of Ohio. We also were visited in the fall of 2018 by the State Superintendent of Schools, who toured the building and met with staff and students. 

Our kindergarten through eighth-grade magnet is a place where every student has the daily opportunity in hands-on science and technology labs. Weekly, our students engage in engineering curriculum through Project Lead the Way. Our middle school students also have the opportunity to explore robotics through coursework and interscholastic competition.

The Science and Technology Magnet also offer other opportunities for a well-rounded student. Students are exposed to orchestra in the fourth grade. Band and choir are also available to students beginning in the fifth grade and is supplemented by music production with our in-house recording studio. 

Our wonderful physical education and art teachers work collaboratively and see students every week and connect their disciplines to other content areas.

Our students also participate in interscholastic athletic teams and have opportunities to be members of various clubs, such as the Kiwanis Builders Club, Astronomy club, Student Council and Environmental Club. 

Our community outreach is strengthened by the Kids Hope USA program that brings in mentors to work with students. 

We have various events throughout the year to enhance student learning. The William A. Fowler Science Series, in partnership with the City of Lima and The Ohio State University-Lima, enables our 7th and 8th graders to tour a college campus and learn from scientists who are practicing in the field. 

With support from the Farm Bureau and multiple county and local businesses and agencies, students learn about agribusiness. Our Science Night for families has grown tremendously in the past few years to showcase student work and participate in hands-on activities.

The staff meets weekly to assess student progress on examine teaching strategies in order to meet individual student needs. Daily updates regarding grades and behavior are available for parents on web-based programs like DOJO, Progressbook and Schoology. 

I welcome you to call me at 419-996-3191 and set up a visit and fill out an application.  Families can tour our building or schedule a shadow day for students. We look forward to hearing from you.
