Did you know that Mountain Elementary School is the only STEM school in Del Norte County? We focus on science, technology, engineering and math. Our teachers are certified to teach Project Lead the Way engineering and science curriculum. This rigorous program engages students in hands-on activities, projects, and problems; empowers them to solve real-world challenges; and inspires them to re-imagine how they see themselves. Our unique program features 1:1 technology, multi grade classrooms, and a small learning community environment. Students receive many special opportunities including weekly hikes for PE, rafting adventures in the spring, and multiple outdoor field trips in our county. Over the past three years our students have shown steady growth in both Language Arts and Mathematics on the California State Standardized tests (CAASPP).
Data science is a topic some students have been studying in math. Students created their own survey, collected and analyzed data and then shared their findings. Check out Rylan’s Data Report and Finch’s Data Report!
