Jennifer Almonte-Gomez’s son, Chase, is in kindergarten at Amana Academy. She and her husband chose Amana, because they see STEM as the future.
“A STEM education provides an opportunity to really develop and practice critical thinking skills that help with solving real world challenges. He is able to acquire relevant knowledge in respect to a world he is actively living and participating in,” she says.
The STEM focus allows students to apply what they’ve learned to solve an authentic problem for the local community. “This provides tangible evidence for students that they are prepared to be global changemakers; not in the distant future, but in the present,” says Cherisse Campbell, Amana’s principal.
