MHS Student Invited to Attend Obama's Youth Town Hall Meeting
It’s not every day that one gets invited to attend a meeting with President Obama, but Aliya Nisbett, a junior at MHS, and Dan Riley, Director of STEM Early College High school, attended Obama’s student forum at the North Carolina A& T University on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016.  View the recent video on this event. https://youtu.be/r5CEE6foTWc
Jobs For the Future, a Boston-based nonprofit that works to ensure educational and economic opportunities, closely partners with MHS.  As a result, Jobs For the Future passed their invitation to the forum to the Marlborough school district.  Riley was honored to accept and accompany Nisbett, who was selected to attend because of her strong involvement in the Pathways Internship Program.  Nisbett is currently taking engineering courses at Quinsigamond Community College and has participated in internships at Raytheon and Hologic.  For more information about this exciting event, click  and read the Metro West Daily News  article.

About Our Logo
The Marlborough Public Schools STEM Early College High School was officially "branded" in late 2011 in a student logo design contest.

After examining more than 100 entries by sixth- and ninth-grade students, the entry selected was created by then freshman Michaela Lacerra. Her prototype was  turned over to advanced engineering students Anthony Vellante and Brandon Mattioli, and they utilized their engineering and drawing skills to redesign Michaela’s prototype and created a three-demensional design that was ultimately approved by Michaela.
