We are excited that our Kindergarten and school aged students a Saint Miriam will follow the Next Generation Science Standards, a multi-state effort in the United States to create new education standards that are “rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.” Our teachers will help prepare your child in S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based subjects, but also include a rounded curricula opportunity with Arts and Music! Through scientific inquiry and experimentation, children will be challenged to understand HOW and WHY science, engineering and technology work, and How S.T.E.A.M. is part of our day-to-day activities from a plate that we eat from to the car we drive!
Saint Miriam prides itself on this unique approach to teaching your child while still young. Here at Saint Miriam, we understand every child learns differently, so we incorporate different approaches into our teaching by way of a ‘makerspace’ (a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.) Our curriculum is very hands-on, so our students learn while doing. We believe in our students reaching their full potential and moving at a speed that encourages learning. Our students are exposed to many different topics and activities such as our S.T.E.A.M.M. theme of the month, robotics, computer programming, chess, karate, yoga, and much more!
