My Students

Our STEM designated school immerses learners in a project based learning curriculum. It is our mission to engage and excel our learners in authentic learning experiences throughout all subject areas, including language arts.

Our learners are inquisitive, creative thinkers with many talents in academics, athletics, and the arts.

Whether they are doing research, completing a design challenge, or working with our business partners, the enthusiasm and excitement they bring to the project is contagious to all who are around them.

My Project

This year we are giving our learners a 40 book challenge! In order to set up our learners for success with this goal, we need to provide books to them that will catch their eyes and interests.

Providing a rich selection of books from all genres and with an appropriate range of reading levels has proven to be a challenge in our small building.

We currently have a very small library that was created, organized, and monitored through the collaboration of our parents, learners, and staff. By adding new books, we hope to fuel their commitment to achieve the 40 book challenge.

The more learners read, the more they learn and grow. We can't wait to see the excitement on their faces when we unveil their new reading options!
