Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Schools
STEM schools use science, technology, engineering, and math to bring relevance to student work and make connections to society and the global world we live in. STEM schools include a fully integrated arts curriculum designed to be responsive and intentional to student needs and support the instructional model. STEM classrooms are student-centered environments rich in questioning and inquiry where students have frequent opportunities to apply engineering design and problem-solving processes to authentic, contextual problems. The classrooms are flexible in design and promote innovative learning theory for all learners.
