We are passionate about STEM education at Mountainville Academy! We want to build a broad STEM culture for our students because we recognize that every child is capable of learning based on their individual needs. We are aware that solid instruction and differentiation will allow us to integrate better STEM teaching into our existing curriculum. By doing this, it will increase academic performance and make a difference in the lives of the young people at our school.
We are intensifying the use of technology at our school and continue to train our teachers to better stay up with the ever changing technological world we live in. We brought in Leslie Fisher, an expert in technology, for a day of training before school started this year. We have four elementary teachers that are currently in an elementary STEM endorsement cohort and are so excited about what they are learning. We added two middle school STEM related classes to our middle school offerings this year. One is a Simply Coding class that students are loving and the other is IT Repair where our 9th grades receive certification when completed. Our computer teacher received training in order to teach the IT repair class. We also offer an Explorer Tech class in middle school that one of our science teachers teach that is a very popular class.
Our big picture goal is to enhance our students’ future lives and help them to be college and career ready, hopefully in a STEM related field.View STEM School Awardees
