Why STEAM?

Our STEAM curriculum, we believe in providing the best education to our students by stepping outside the traditional classroom and embracing a more fluid, dynamic, and logical approach. Our innovative learning perspective encourages inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking, ensuring that our students are well-equipped to face the challenges of the future. With a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, we remove the brick walls of learning to explore and expand the brightest minds of tomorrow.

Research Speaking For Itself

A study from 2014 shows the connecting STEAM and literacy can positively impact cognitive development, increase literacy and math skills, and help students reflect meaningfully on their work and that of their peers (Cunnington, Marisol, Andrea Kantrowitz, Susanne Harnett, and Aline Hill-Ries.).

This is further supported by a study on the relationship between theater arts and student literacy and mathematics achievement from 2014. “Results showed that students whose language arts curricula were infused with theater arts often outperformed their control group counterparts, who received no arts integration, in both math and language arts” (Inoa, R., Weltsek, G., & Tabone, C.).

And in an international study published in the Journal of Educational Change, researchers found that secondary teachers’ reflections “revealed inter-, trans- and cross-disciplinary learning shaped by teacher collaboration, dialogue and classroom organization that fosters critical and creative thinking.” (Anne Harris and Leon R. de Bruin).
