The Kennemer STEAM Program is a student-centered, choice program that balances a concentration of academic core subjects while integrating a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics model. Traditional subjects (English, Math, Social Studies, and Science) will still be taught; however, the elements of STEAM will be embedded in the day-to-day coursework and electives.
The STEAM model allows students to apply knowledge and skills in a real-world context by equipping them with the tools necessary to make connections and problem solve in a college and career-focused atmosphere.
The goal of the Duncanville STEAM Academy is to nurture the analytic and creative abilities of all scholars by supporting the nature of a growth mindset. The non-traditional methods of the classroom setting and professional learning communities at STEAM will revolutionize instructional practices as our scholars find the connections, bridges, and unifying themes of learning across the content areas.
All Scholars will -
- be a member of an Academic House;
- receive guidance counseling to ensure success through the STEAM Design period;
- participate in Pre-AP courses and courses that will provide high school credit while in middle school;
- receive hand-held technology to enhance their learning.
