OUR TEACHERS DO MORE THAN TEACH – THEY ENCOURAGE, UNDERSTAND, ANTICIPATE AND EMPATHIZE. THESE ARE THE HALLMARKS OF ST. LAURENCE TEACHERS.

In today’s technologically advanced world, there is an increasing need for students to gain critical thinking skills and an integrative understanding of subject areas, particularly science, mathematics, and technology. A major component of the StL STEM approach is the use of technology in the classroom. Students will use a wide range of resources, including computers and white boards, within their classes to help them experience the concepts they are learning. While using this technology within the classroom, students will also have the opportunity to demonstrate their work in innovative ways, including group projects and performances, allowing them further creativity and ownership of their work.
