As part of our commitment to empowering students with the skills and knowledge to become agents of action in our global, multicultural society, Arts and STEM programs are pillars of our School programs. They provide opportunities for deep, engaging explorations that hone students critical and creative thinking skills. Students develop a lens through which they can view and understand the interconnected and multicultural nature of their world and develop the skills to identify and solve complex problems from a position of empathy and understanding. Whether a budding artist, inventor, or tinkerer, or from a more skilled position or advanced base of knowledge, our programs provide students with extensive opportunities to develop and showcase their skills and prepare for their future. Elementary programs establish a strong foundation for students as they learn to make connections between their subjects. As students grow through the ARTS and STEM programs, teachers design interdisciplinary experiences that draw from student interest, current course content and real-world applications across the areas.
