What is STEAM?
STEM education refers to the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEAM education incorporates the “A” for the arts – recognizing that to be successful in technical fields, individuals must also be creative and use critical thinking skills which are best developed through exposure to the arts. Lessons are designed to build critical thinking skills in all content areas.
Will there be an entry test(s)?
No, but multiple measures are considered when evaluating every student's curricular progress and experience, including but not limited to:
