In 2017, we added a new program to our school in Fayetteville, NC, a middle school that places an emphasis on STEM subjects. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Much like our preschool and grade school classes, students in the STEM middle school program enjoy small class sizes, with a maximum of 15 students per classroom. Our qualified teachers help each student reach his or her potential by providing individualized attention and differentiated learning, so your child learns at a pace that is challenging without being discouraging.
Importance of STEM
STEM is the direction in which our world is moving. Each day, more and more jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math are opening up, and each day, people in these careers are making important discoveries and creating new and innovative technologies. Your child could be one of these forward-thinkers. By making STEM fun and accessible, we create a greater chance for our students to choose to study one of these fields in higher education. Those who decide to go into a STEM field will have the chance to change the world, whether it’s by developing a breakthrough vaccine or improving the environment. We are excited to offer this new program to students and do our part to prepare children to improve quality of life in the future.
Students enrolled in our STEM middle school also have access to classes in reading, writing, social studies, art and music, various clubs and activities, as well as our summer camp, so they can explore other facets of learning as well.
