In-school, After-school, and Summer programs for students:
A+ Art (after school in Fall and Spring) – Is your child a budding artist? A+ Art drawing classes combine your child's love of drawing with the skills they need to improve. Your children will learn new techniques to express their imagination while improving their motor skills, patience levels and ability to stay on task.
Mad Science of St. Louis (after school in Fall and Spring, K-5) This program extends the science curriculum through additional experimentation and experiences.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) – promotes discovery, exploration, higher level thinking, collaboration and problem solving both inside and outside the classroom by seeking to incorporate practical, hands-on engineering and technology in to traditional science and math experiences. Our goal it to show our children HOW to enjoy this higher-level by experiencing it. By using Discovery Education tools, website resources like the Khan Academy and so much more, we are using technology, engineering and math beyond the classroom in 'hands-on' opportunities that allow your children to use their skills and nurture a love of these activities.
