About ASD

The Academy for Science and Design, the state of New Hampshire’s top-performing public school and largest STEM-specialty school, is aimed at expanding students’ interest and ability in STEM locally and statewide. ASD was recognized by Newsweek in 2015 and 2016 as a Top 50 Best American High School, was recognized by U.S. News and World Report in 2018, 2019 and 2020 as the number one high-school in New Hampshire and is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. ASD was awarded the 2019 Secondary School of Excellence in New Hampshire. 

Serving as both a public, open-enrollment middle/high school with a STEM-specialty focus, the success of the Academy for Science and Design is based on its commitment to engage a diversity of student learners at both of these levels through an exemplary structure for broadening student access to STEM-focused learning opportunities. Accordingly, ASD's program design is focused on providing early exposure to opportunities in STEM that younger students may be unaware of, and then encouraging and supporting those students as they pursue a highly personalized pathway to a specialized STEM field in high school.
