STEM education includes every field under the umbrella of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. There is some debate in the STEM community about the advantages of including arts in that lineup as a means of stressing creativity and innovation in these fields. Skyline Math and Science Academy plans to take this approach and will incorporate arts alongside STEM subjects in its curriculum to raise and spark students’ creativity and innovation.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has said, “everyone has a stake in improving STEM education. Inspiring all our students to be capable in math and science will help them contribute in an increasingly technology-based economy, and will also help America prepare the next generation of STEM professionals—scientists, engineers, architects and technology professionals—to ensure our competitiveness.”

However, students need qualified, enthusiastic teachers to teach them the essential building blocks of STEM subjects. Teachers at Skyline Math and Science Academy will bring these subjects to students with passion and excitement and spark students’ interest in STEM subjects.
