Schedule:

  • Students may be dropped off at 7:30 AM, and school starts at 8:00. Lunch is 11:30-12:00, and school is out at 3:00. Students should be picked up by 3:30 at the latest. On Wednesdays, we release early at 12:00 for teacher professional development, but we will provide "after school" activities starting with a study hall and evolving as we get volunteers to start clubs. STrEaM is now on a Block schedule. For more information contact the school at 742-9000

Classes:

  • All students have math, science, social studies and language arts core courses. Additionally, students participate in physical education and health geared toward our mission and vision (outdoor recreation, wilderness safety, backpacking, first aide, etc.) All classes focus on an integrated, project-based approach. We will also offer elective courses aligned with our mission: mainly STEM and outdoor/experiential learning. 

Lunch:

  • We do not provide district food service lunches. Students are expected to bring their own lunch. 

    We do have a partnership with WOODEN SPOONS, a catering company that delivers healthy and delicious lunches.  Wooden Spoons Website

    Emergency rations can be purchased from Mrs. Biondich, our Administrative Assistant, for a low fee. This is for emergencies only - please do not use this option as a fall back for not coming prepared.

Technology:

  • We have Chromebook laptops, and much of our curriculum is accessed online including Google Classroom. We are a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school: Students may bring laptops, tablets and smartphones, provided they follow school, classroom and district policies on responsible use. Students may not use the university's wifi- they must connect to the ASD wifi. Students should only use devices in class at the direction of the classroom teacher, and STrEaM is not liable for lost, stolen or damaged items. 

Volunteers:

  • STrEaM does not require parents to volunteer, but it is a critical commitment we ask you to make. Our volunteer coordinator on the board is Caroline Storm: please contact her at caroline.f.storm@gmail.com
