Since its start the West Fargo STEM program has maintained its focus on delivering standards based instruction through meaningful project based learning experiences. Our innovative approach to teaching and learning centers on the Engineering Design Process and focuses on preparing students for the career and academic challenges of the 21st Century. All students, no matter what their future interest, benefit from the applied nature of the curriculum and the 21st Century skills they develop.
The West Fargo STEM program began in the Fall of 2009. What began that year as a 6th and 7th grade program serving 150 students has flourished and grown. The program added 8th grade in 2010 and has now made its way to the High School with a STEM Pathway. Students register for STEM and are selected by lottery for the middle school level. Students can select from the STEM pathway at the High School Level. (see the tab below for more information)
