STEM & Technology
WISH is thrilled to have the Next Generation Science Standards infused into every developmental level of our learning experience! In the Elementary school, we begin with PLTW Launch. Students enjoy the inquiry-based learning modules and become perseverant problem solvers.
Middle school students have STEM as one of their core classes! Everyone takes it every year and our students enjoy the PLTW Gateway Units. From medical detectives to design and modeling, students establish a strong foundation in the design and engineering process.
WISH Academy students have the opportunity to pursue one of four pathways at the high school level. Two of the pathways, Engineering and Biomedical Sciences are grounded in the PLTW curriculum and allow for the high school students to prepare for careers in the fields while developing a foundation using real-world problems and ideas. Some of these courses are so rigorous that dual credit for high school and college is provided.
All TK-8th-grade students receive high-quality technology instruction using a co-teaching model with PlanetBravo. The co-teaching model ensures that our general education teachers have the most cutting-edge, innovative practices for our young people around technology and that they know how to support them in the classroom. At WISH we believe all students need to understand cloud-computing, coding, game design, web development, how to create a podcast, and so much more!
