STEA3M Middle Schools

Download the Family Guide

Started in the 2016-17 school year and as part of Vision One91, we offer an exciting magnet concept at all three District 191 middle schools. We've taken the best of the magnet programs we had in all three junior highs, and shared them in all three new middle schools with grades 6-8. We also added quality elements that we've come across in extensive research of best practices to create a unique design we call STEA3with academic rigor, relevance, opportunity and community!

Every middle school is a STEA3M school with science, technology, engineering and math. Each school also has three As for Arts, AVID and Advanced Learning. The curriculum designed for our middle schools is interdisciplinary, project and inquiry-based, and focuses on key units of study aligned to national and state standards. The STEA3M mindset is embedded in all lessons, challenges students to reach their highest potential, and sets a foundation for high school, college and career success. Our STEA3M middle schools prepare students for the workplace of the future, which will expect employees to think critically, use creativity and apply skills to ever-evolving situations. [See brochure]
