Stratford School receives Carnegie STEM Pathway recognition
Submitted By Kelsey Basten
Silicon Valley-based educational leader Stratford School announces that it is the first educational institution in the state of California to earn the prestigious Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway Digital Seal for excellence in education. STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, is a critical component of preparing todayÕs students for future careers.
The Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway Digital Seal initiative is built on the belief that schools can improve their STEM education practices through a collaborative, positive approach. In order to receive the seal, schools are evaluated in six areas: teacher qualifications, curriculum, instructional practices, assessment and demonstration of skills, family engagement, and real-world connections.
ÒWe are honored to join the national group of distinguished schools that receive the Carnegie STEM Excellence Seal,Ó says StratfordÕs Founder, Sherry Adams. ÒIt is clear that STEM education is critical for the next generation, and this is part of StratfordÕs educational promise. Stratford believes that innovation is not simply a technical matter, but rather one of understanding how people and societies work creatively and collaboratively together to build a bright future. Preparing our students to lead tomorrowÕs global economy is our sacred responsibility.Ó
