lessed Sacrament has been working on its
STEM certification, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM is a growing trend in education since 21st
century jobs are expected to require those skills. At Blessed Sacrament they decided to add Art and Religion to make it a STREAM school to recognize the importance of art education and the school’s religious foundation.
Unlike many curricular reforms these days, this was an in-house creation.
“Because the way we learned is different from how these kids are learning in the 21st century,” said Principal Maria Gomez.
