Chardon Hills STEM School
An exceptional school for extraordinary learners
To instill a love for learning and exploration in our students through experiential learning and a creative curriculum. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) will be integrated across the disciplines to stimulate each child's creativity and natural curiosity in order to combine the content with innovative teaching methods and an engaging environment to encourage every individual child to reach their maximum potential. Each child will be prepared to compete with all the same age peers from anywhere in the world.
Our STEM Approach
Our school uses the Engineering is Elementary Curriculum from the Museum of Science: Boston, designed to foster engineering and technological literacy. The students are engaged in project-based learning where they work alone and in groups to solve real-life problems. In the fall of 2020, we will add enrichment classes in technology, coding, and robotics that introduce students to today's in-demand and high-earning careers.
The curriculum at Chardon Hills STEM School is high quality and based on research. Technology is an integral part of this curriculum as we provide an iPad for use during lessons for every student in the building. Students participate in both small group and whole-class reading and math lessons, with instruction designed to address student strengths and needs. Gifted learners engage in challenging lessons throughout the day that encourage them to take ownership of their learning. Additionally, all students have opportunities to extend their learning through participation in field trips and extra-curricular activities.
Chardon Hills is committed to working with families to provide students a rigorous education in a supportive environment. We will communicate regularly about student progress, school events, and what your child is learning in school. We promise to be your partner in helping your child succeed.
The Chardon Hills STEM School, starting with the 2020-2021 school year, will require students and families to complete an application and go through a selection process to be considered for admission. Students will be required to follow a dress code and, along with their families, pledge to meet the "Chardon Hills School Promise" developed by our Family School Partnership Committee.
