Makerspace Labs – Active Learning

A Makerspace environment is learning space dedicated to a constructivist education, which allows students to be creative, innovative, independent and technologically literate. It provides authentic preparation for the real world through simulating real-world challenges. Think of it as a 21 century do-it-yourself shop class, where students design, experiment, build and invent.

Students will have daily exposure to STEAM-based learning, which uses a hands-on, systematic approach to teach science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics while developing both problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Free All-Day Kindergarten

Our kindergarten classrooms introduce STEAM based curriculum with age appropriate activities. Students also enjoy the benefits of PE, music, art, library and technology.
