Classes with a STEAM Focus

SIG course periods provide a robust and challenging academic experience that offer students a variety of instructional learning opportunities. These experiences range from collaborative work groups, independent investigations, experiments, interactive explorations, research, performance tasks, and so much more to develop personal passions, divergent/convergent thinking, and creative production.

With small class sizes and low student-teacher ratios, course instructors and teaching assistants provide attention and flexibility based on students' readiness, leaving room to allow for exploration of students' personal interests.
