Why Choose Garfield STEM?

The world is changing at a pace that is unprecedented in human history. How we work, shop, play, and interact has been revolutionized by the technological innovations of the last few decades. We know the innovations of today will be obsolete in a few short years, and, in some cases, even months. We may not know how the world will change but we can be assured the rate of change will not slow down and will likely accelerate. Our students will need to be lifelong learners,  prepared to take the jobs and careers of the future, many of which do not even exist yet.  


To succeed in this new fast-paced world of the 21st century workplace, our students will need to cultivate a new set of skills. Problem solving, critical thinking, and innovation will be valued over simple task completion. Our students must be capable of imagining a range of possible solutions to any given problem and select the best course of action. Great outcomes are seldom accomplished alone. Students must be able to collaborate effectively with their peers and make effective contributions to a team.


Garfield STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) is committed to giving our students the tools they will need to make their college and career goals a reality. Our students begin their day with a caring advisor who helps them navigate the complexities of middle school, get organized, sharpen their interpersonal skills, and learn how to effectively collaborate through teambuilding games, competitions, and challenges. Weekly morning meetings with their whole grade level build a sense of community and identity.


The core classes of Humanities, Science, and Math meet in 82 minute sessions. These longer blocks allow our teachers the time needed to give our students challenging and interesting projects where students have the opportunity to explore complex problems and work with classmates to discover solutions . The engineering component of our program is delivered through each student’s Science class. Sixth  graders work with robotics in our state of the art technology lab and 7th graders work  with specialized software to develop  new and original computer applications.Technology is integrated and woven throughout the curriculum. Every student develops a personal website and is  able to complete and submit work electronically  using the Google Classroom platform. We have four stationary computer labs and four mobile computer labs available for our students. We are able to deliver this specialized instruction in a small school community of less than 400 students.


Garfield STEM also has everything you would expect from a traditional middle school. We have a first rate athletics program with basketball, volleyball, track and field, flag football, and soccer. Our electives include art, band, orchestra, information technology, physical education, AVID, and  Junior Army Guard (JAG). After school enrichment programs are also available.
