Rocky Heights Middle School’s John Veit Named Administrator of the Year

Written by Bill Laurienti

Congratulations to John Veit, Assistant Principal at Rocky Heights Middle School in Highlands Ranch, CO.

Veit was recently named Administrator of the Year by the Colorado High School Press Association. Rocky Heights has been one of our valued partner for many years and deserves all the high recognition its staff and students regularly receive.

And where else would John receive his award but in the Media Arts SmartLab HQ!

Case Study

Going beyond STEM to teach essential skills

When the team at Jewell Houston Academy, a magnet school in Texas, looked for a STEM program, they wanted one that would not only engage students in STEM careers but could also teach conflict-resolution, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills.
