Curriculum & School Culture

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND ENVIRONMENT
At Harmon STEM we believe Jesus gives us the best example of how to live. Our curriculum is Christian-based, as is the culture of the school.
Harmon STEM has a no tolerance policy for bullying and we encourage our scholars to stand up for what is right.
We are an intentionally small school that caters to the needs of all our scholars. Our size allows us to create a familial atmosphere where scholars and staff are encouraged to love one another.
While we are a Christianity school, we do not teach the Christian doctrine of any denomination. Scholars are introduced to Biblical people and Biblical principles to live a life full of potential.
Every Tuesday we hold Chapel service where Christian leaders are invited to come in and speak life into our scholars.

ACADEMICS
Harmon STEM takes academics seriously. We use the ABEKA curriculum which has a great reputation for helping children exceed in their learning. At Harmon STEM we expect > 80%, 100% of the time. Scholars and staff work extremely hard to make certain that scholars earn at least 80% on school work, tests, and quizzes and we make every second count to achieve our goal 100% of the time. In addition to time in school, learning is extended with field trips and projects.
Why STEM Education?
As our world changes so does the future demand on employment. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are the “what’s next” in the world in which we live. Our scholars complete STEM-related projects each quarter to help familiarize them and their families with STEM. In addition our enrichment classes introduce scholars to computer coding, engineering, design, and science classes such as botany.

CLASSES and CLASS SIZES
Scholars at Harmon STEM School take traditional classes found in all schools. Our grades are combined which allows for all scholars to exceed their academic ability and challenges scholars to try harder. There are no more than 10 scholars in each class and academic support is given when needed.

ANNUAL EXPEDITION
Beginning in the 2015-2016 academic year Harmon STEM began a tradition of the Annual Expedition. The Annual Expedition is an extension of what scholars have learned, and/or are learning. The Expedition is out of state and parents are required to attend. Parents and staff hold fundraising activities during the entire school year in order to fund the trip.
