Welcome to the River Rouge STEM Academy
The River Rouge STEM Academy is a K-8 school enrolling for the 2017-2018 school year. This innovative and dynamic initiative was created to meet the interests and needs of families who want to ensure that their children have the essential skills necessary to compete in the modern world. STEM education removes the traditional barriers between core content areas (Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts) by integrating the four subjects into one cohesive stream of teaching and learning. Each student has a full dose of STEM Courses every day so they are able to solve complex problems and demonstrate mastery of Standards within the Fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
What is STEM Education?
STEM is an acronym of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for students success, but also because Engineering design process is deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.
It is our mission at River Rouge STEM Academy to prepare a career and college ready workforce of innovators, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Engaging our students through rigor and APB (Activity, Project, Problem-Based learning), the computer sciences, biomedical sciences and engineering design model are key components of our K-8 curriculum. It is our goal to embrace diversity and raise the economic dynamics of every student, family, community and culture that enter our doors.
To produce innovative thinkers by any means necessary.
