Deer Lakes' STEM Philosophy

The STEM initiative at Deer Lakes School District provides an integrated educational approach enabling students to learn through collaborative and cross curricular instruction to develop 21st century skills and knowledge while enhancing science, technology, engineering and mathematics experiences.



At Deer Lakes, STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is among our top priorities, and our teachers, classes, and resources in those areas are of great quality and variety.

We continue to dedicate an abundance of resources towards our STEM programs, which allows our students to achieve in a number of disciplines.

Our science department encompasses several tracks, from biology and environmental sciences, to physics and chemistry, with a myriad of courses there contained.

With many different levels and studies available to our students, every pupil can find a challenging and interesting subject to take.
