Who We Are

The Sylvan School STEAM program is grounded in a rigorous standards-based curriculum. Interwoven into this curriculum are hands-on labs and activities that provide interdisciplinary connections and real-world contexts. Augmenting the core curriculum is a variety of multi-grade level electives, broadening student interests and educational exploration.

Classes are held in modernized classrooms that allow students easy access to technology and provide flexible spaces to build, experiment, design, and create. Moveable classroom furniture allows students to work individually and in small or large collaborative groups.
