Welcome to ASU Prep Poly STEM Academy

The STEM Academy is comprised of two school sites (elementary school and middle school) on the ASU Polytechnic campus and prepares students to partner with ASU researchers to develop real-world solutions to solve issues and create a better world. Students gain hands-on experience, which is helping to establish a strong STEM pipeline of future graduates and ultimately science, technology, engineering and mathematics professionals.

The academic focus for students in the elementary school program is to, based on the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards, provide a rigorous curriculum in the areas of:

Students at our ASU Prep Poly STEM Academy work at their individual developmental levels and learn based on the students’ needs in both math and reading. Students are also engaged in a variety of authentic project-based challenges that bring learning to life. Working with experts in the field, university faculty, family and community members develop solutions to the world’s challenges.

Students work in clusters of first and second, third and fourth, fifth and sixth and seventh and eighth grades with content area experts in grades 5-7. Clustering students for two years enables us to provide a greater degree of continuous academic growth on an individual student basis.

In grades K-4, each day ends with all students participating in a project group activity within teams. The project group curriculum, often focusing on science or social studies, heightens the importance of learning by allowing the students to use what they learned that day in their academic classes. Students also receive instruction in STEM, Music, Spanish, Physical Education and Art.

In grades 5-7, with our teachers as content area experts, students rotate through a block schedule of Mathematics, English/Language Arts, Social Studies, STEM and Science. Students also receive instruction in Spanish, Music, Physical Education and Art.
