STEM³ Academy middle school is for bright, curious, technology-driven students with social and learning differences, including autism, and ADHD. STEM³ Academy middle school provides students from 6th grade through 8th grade a rich STEM environment in which they can flourish academically, socially and emotionally. The teachers establish strong relationships with students, challenging them not only to succeed, but to thrive. Students reach their fullest potential, prepared to meet the demands of high school, college and career.
The mission of STEM3 Academy middle school is to celebrate the potential of our students to accomplish great things, to preserve that spirit of wonderment and joy typical of their age and to encourage their exploration of the world around them. We harness their curiosity about the way the world works through accelerated STEM academics and 21st Century skills to increase their success in high school.
We value the nurturing of individual expression and creativity, and the culture of the school is to build a sense of curiosity and exploration, a thirst for learning. Projects and assignments require students to apply what they know and encourage them to use their skills in innovative ways. A strong curriculum combined with hands-on learning produces critical thinkers and creative doers, ready to take on the challenges of school and life.
Students who would thrive fall into a number of different categories: there are those who are academically strong; there are those who have a defined interest and passion for some STEM-based activity or area of interest; there are those who would benefit from the kind of experiential, hands-on approach that is our learning model; and there are those who have an enquiring and inquisitive mind.
