VISION - Engage, Communicate, Collaborate, Create, & Think Critically.
MISSION - Provide an environment where students, staff, and the community are actively engaged in project based learning through a student-centered approach with real-world applications. Foster students who lead and contribute to the world around them.


Kindergarten Orientation, commonly known as Kindergarten Roundup, is an informational session for both families and future Kindergarten students. It gives families the opportunity to learn about Kindergarten at STEAM along with what they can do to prepare their children for next year. For students, it gives them an opportunity to see what a classroom looks like, to interact with adults and peers they may not know, and it introduces them to school structure and routine. Following Roundup, students will need to attend an assessment session for a more in-depth exposure to Kindergarten.
