Our School

Booker T. Washington STEM Academy is the District's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) elementary school, and was recently named a Magnet School of Choice.


We empower students to think critically, reflectively, and apply their knowledge and skills to a greater context. Students experience unique opportunities for STEM education with rigorous and relevant hands-on investigations through inquiry-based instruction, integrated curriculum, and collaboration.


Our vision is to foster innovative thinking through STEM teaching and learning, a passion for inquiry, anad a compassion for others so we can enrich our world.


In August 2011, students entered the STEM Academy at Booker T. Washington for the first time. In this 21st Century global economy, an education with a STEM focus is a vital step towards providing students with the necessary technical literacy to enable them to access exciting careers of the future. Booker T. Washington STEM Academy will provide a supportive environment at an early stage for the students who attend the school and will build cumulative competencies in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
