Central Middle STEM
Central Middle School's STEM program allows students to take a deep dive into subjects that include Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Our STEM students use real world experiences to understand how STEM is an interactive system that helps to solve real world problems. Radical curiosity is nurtured along with values that include empathy and integrity as students use critical thinking skills in a collaborative student-centered environment.
