Our STEM Program - American Montessori Campus


The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is preparation of the spirit.
– Maria Montessori

Our Weekly Enrichment Class

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines- science, technology, engineering and mathematics- in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discreet subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
