  • A Focus on STEM

    Why is STEM important for students? STEM projects change the way kids think and solve problems--students learn to ask questions and seek creative solutions. Collaboration, creative thinking and leading with questions with a focus on solutions--these skills are essential in high school, college, and in life--and are the backbone of our STEM program.
STEM begins in Preschool, with cooking and measuring, learning about the world around us and beginning to observe.  It continues in Elementary School, with weekly visits to the STEM lab where students engage in projects ranging from robotics and coding to following the life-cycle for a trout egg.  STEM classes in the Elementary program are taught by a specialist teacher.

In Middle School, students utilize integrated curriculum and participate in programs such as the Ocean Ambassadors.  Our extensive yearly elective offerings have included coding and robotics, strategic games and advanced concepts in math.  Opportunities abound for students to stretch their learning. Our middle schoolers participate  in the county-wide mathletes competitions and have the opportunity to explore their own interest in the yearly capstone Hawk Project.
