My Students

At our school, the students have the enthusiasm to be "rocket scientist" one day. The students have a great love for STEM as well as other subjects. The students at our school are driven and motivated individuals who truly care about science.

Our school is starting a new science program that the students are excited about.

The students at this school have been waiting for a science program that is hands on. When I asked the students to explain what they felt would be the perfect science class one student explained, " I want to do experiments in science class and not read books". The majority of these students want to be hands on!

Overall, the students at our school are very driven and motivated to not just learn the subject of science, but to experience science first hand. Our students have a bright future in the STEM world!
