Today's student is one that is preparing for a globally changing,
advancing world that is more connected than ever before. The lessons
they are learning are not only ones that are preparing them for the
classroom, but for the workforce and future that awaits them upon
graduation. STEAM-related professions are one of the most rapidly
growing fields in our nation and world - and our teachers are working to
make sure that our students are well prepared to be tomorrow's leaders.
The philosophy behind our STEAM programs focuses on providing our
students with meaningful experiences that allow them to construct their
knowledge of their world and use their skills to think critically and
solve problems. The skills that they are learning aim to provide them
with opportunities to view the interconnected nature of our world and
engage in challenges that sharpen those skills. The experiences that
students are having in our schools are sure to springboard their
successes in any career imaginable and even jobs in fields that have not
yet been developed.
Each year, in May we celebrate our successes in STEAM with our Annual STEAM Symposium.
Please consider joining us for our 5th Annual STEAM Symposium on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 from 5pm - 8pm in the HS Gymnasium.
