Congratulations Vanderlyn Vikings! We are AdvancED STEM certified. AdvancED STEM is the first internationally recognized STEM certification. Currently, just 50 schools, internationally and nationally, have been awarded AdvancED STEM Certification.

Vanderlyn is proud to be amongst the first in the Dekalb County School District and the State of Georgia to achieve AdvancED STEM certification! This is an impressive accomplishment that cements Vanderlyn as a formidable, academic powerhouse that is rooted in 21st century best-teaching practices and epitomizes success for all students.
