Our mission is to create a challenging learning community where students will be engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering, Fine Arts and Mathematics through an inquiry-based curriculum. Our vision is to build student leaders who will be successful in the 21st Century.
We will do this by facilitating student learning opportunities that utilize the engineering design process, integrate curriculum that is inquiry based, and expose students to the variety of technologies that exists today.
An emphasis on design and problem solving in the classroom will allow students to use trans-disciplinary tools for discovery and for developing solutions to problems that are open-ended. Such a classroom will give students an understanding of the relationships of all STEAM areas as they are used in the real world beyond the classroom walls. Instead of separating science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math into individual curriculum “silos,” STEAM can provide our students with the integrative tools of investigation and analysis. Consequently, a STEAM classroom shifts students away from learning isolated facts, to experience-based inquiry with opportunities for independent learning.
