iSTEM Mission 
We prepare students for their futures by developing confidence and skills to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems.  

iSTEM students integrate rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics curriculum using the PBL (Problem-Based Learning) model. Local and global issues challenge students to transfer their learning into real world solutions. Language Arts and Social Studies build communication skills and an understanding of human and natural systems that is critical to the problem-solving process.

Core Values 

 Courage                            Critical Thinking

 Responsibility                 Self-Awareness 

What is iSTEM?
 iSTEM is....!
  • an instructional model emphasizing the rigorous content and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
  • Problem-Based Learning (PBL) - a cross content approach to Jeffco curriculum
  • Inquiry based, Collaborative, Critical Thinking, Student centered
  • Language Arts and Social Studies are fully integrated into our STEM program
    • reading and writing in the STEM curriculum develops proficiency in drawing inferences, analyzing data, complex problem-solving, and deepening conceptual knowledge technology is integrated as a common instructional tool.
  • Technology is an instructional tool; using digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively
Who is an iSTEM student? 
You are a GREAT FIT if you are....
  • passionate about science and math
  • enjoy collaborative work
  • a motivated, independent learner
  • persistent and curious
  • comfortable using a variety of technologies

Devices in iSTEM:
    If you would like your student to have a personal device for their technology needs this year, we suggest the Chromebook, the iPAD, and the Mini-iPAD as the best choices for the work that your student will do. It is not a requirement that students have personal devices for this program.
