STREAM School's Philosophy
STREAM School believes that an inquiry based atmosphere using Project Based Learning allows us to meet the needs of all our students in preparing them for a successful future. In addition, projects need to connect to real world opportunities because our students want to connect their learning to the world in which they live. Teachers work alongside local professionals in developing project ideas that connect the content to the project. In order to facilitate this experience, it takes a community of people doing more together. The Outdoor Discovery Center provides the resources and support necessary to develop and manage the projects the STREAM School engages in. Teachers work alongside Conservation Education Specialist Larry Fegel in designing authentic, engaging, and educational experiences. In addition, students are given an opportunity to explore and think about how their passions and interests could play out in the future. Students consistently have opportunities to witness a variety of jobs and future possibilities!
