Welcome to the PCSD STEM Education
The Parma City School District STEM Education is a voluntary attendance program designed to draw K-5 students who have a particular interest and desire to experience education through an integrated, project-based setting. As a school of choice, we seek support from parents as partners in our mission to create a dynamic, learning community. Students will receive instruction in all major subject areas (writing, reading, math, science, and social studies) as well as technology, engineering, and fine arts. Students from all elementary attendance areas are eligible to attend.
PCSD STEM Education
This program provides children with an environment where they experience mathematics and science as an integral part of everyday life. Students will use the design process in all content areas to problem-solve, create, collaborate, and communicate. PCSD STEM Education will strive to create learning communities where thinking skills and habits of mind are taught, practiced, valued, and are infused into school culture. These skills and habits will help students produce information rather than simply reproducing it. Students will be asked to demonstrate their learning through a variety of ways and share their work with authentic audiences.
Congratulations to the Parma City School District’s Pleasant Valley Elementary and STEM School for being recognized by the WVIZ/PBS Education Advisory Council as Innovative Educators! STEM teachers Brenda Nikic and Melissa Moore, who were instrumental in starting the STEM School, presented on behalf of the district to share best practices at the April 14, 2015 WVIZ/PBS Advisory Council Meeting.
