At Anchorage STrEaM Academy we do project-based learning, STEM curriculum like robotics and engineering challenges, and experiential outdoor education including "TREKs" or full day field trips. We get outside every day, so come prepared for the weather.
We work collaboratively in groups and teams, solve problems, engage in hands-on activities, and practice "leave no trace" to take care of our environment and space. STrEaM is a great place to learn and grow while preparing for your future.
Every STrEaM student is part of an advisory group, and your advisor will help with grades, homework, and study skills as well as team building and support. We require all students to keep and maintain a student planner, and much of our classwork is on Google classroom. In the fall of 2020 we adopted the Canvas platform, too.
We have enough chromebooks for each student to have a designated device, but we also allow you to "bring your own device"- as long as you use it appropriately!
STrEaM students are engaged citizens who think critically, are involved in their learning, and inspired by our natural world. We believe everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, and pride ourselves on our positive, supportive school climate and culture. Our school is a safe place where we care for our learning, our world and each other. Monthly students are nominated for and may receive a STAR Badge for excellence in one of four areas. STAR badges are given for STEM, Tenacity, Adventure and Renaissance.
Welcome to STrEaM Academy: it is a great day to be a Rapid!
