• Science & Technology Program

     

    The Science and Technology Program was established in 1976;  it is a highly challenging four-year curriculum which provides college level academic experiences in science, math, and technology. The program is offered at three centers:  Eleanor Roosevelt High School in northern Prince George's County, Oxon Hill High School in southern Prince George's County, and Charles H. Flowers High School in central Prince George’s County. Students attend the center that serves their legal residence. Transportation is provided for all students. View the S&T Center InformationAdmissions Rubric, and Composite Score Profile for more information. 

    Of twenty-eight possible credits, a student is required to obtain a minimum of thirteen credits in specific mathematics, pre-engineering technology, science, and research courses.  In grades 9 and 10, the program consists of common experience courses for all students.  In grades 11 and 12, each student must choose course work from one of four focus areas.  Students enroll in a full schedule during the entire four-year program.  Courses designated S/T are the equivalent of honors or TAG classes and in fact, exceed the requirements of typical honors classes. External experiences are possible and encouraged, but must be a direct extension of or enrichment of the Science & Technology Program.

    Seniors complete a research project, similar to a master's thesis.  Many students conduct their research at prestigious facilities in the Washington, D.C. area, such as U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Drug Administration, The National Institute of Health, University of Maryland, The Catholic University of America, Patuxent Wildlife Center, and the National Zoo.  

    Ninety-eight percent (98%) of the students who completed the Science & Technology Program in 2017 entered a four-year college or university.  The other two percent are starting at a community college with plans to transfer to a four-year college or are taking a gap year.  The mean SAT score for the class of 2017 was 1301 out of 1600  (Math 659, Evidence-Based Reading and Writing 646).

  • Science Lab   Admission Policy

    Admission to the Science &Technology Program is highly competitive; it represents the top 5% of students from Prince George's County Public Schools.  Annually between over 2600 students undergo competitive testing for 500-550 seats.  Ninth grade students whose G.P.A. and standardized tests scores rank among the top 250 in the northern part of the county comprise each new freshmen class at Eleanor Roosevelt.  Ninth grade students whose G.P.A. and standardized test scores rank among the top 150 in the southern part of the county comprise each new freshmen class at Oxon Hill and those that rank in the top 150 in the central area comprise the freshmen class of Charles Flowers.  Tenth grade students are admitted on a space available basis and must compete for a few openings per year.  In all instances, grades in major subjects and scores on the standardized test are the only criteria used to determine admission.


  • Science Lab   Admission RequirementsStudents are admitted into the program based on three criteria and each criteria is weighed equally:
    • Grades from four quarters of 7th grade and the first quarter of 8th grade (or four quarters of 8th grade and first quarter of 9th grade) in math, science, English, and social studies. 
    • Standardized reading comprehension test. 
    • Standardized numerical test.  
    Students presently or previously enrolled in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) who are recommended by appropriate school staff will take an abstract reasoning test in lieu of the standardized verbal test.
