Our Mission:
The Bluestem Institute at Ames High School invites senior students to explore the role of the individual in society and to develop the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world. By examining the personal, social, cultural, and scientific implications of our daily choices, we aspire to facilitate a public expression of students’ personal ethics and help them begin to answer the question, “How should I live?”
