STEAM at SPAE

Sequoia Pathfinder Academy at Eastmark is committed to broadening students’ level of exploration in education. SPAE provides multiple hands-on learning opportunities beyond the typical classroom setting through in-school specials classes where students explore science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM).

Specials Classes Include:

  1. LEGO Engineering taught by Bonanza Educational
  2. Arizona Science Center Classes
  3. Art Exploration
  4. Music Instruction
  5. Spanish Class
  6. Physical Education

Technology Immersion within the Classroom

Students in second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grades have individual Chromebooks to use for one to one computing.

Additionally, our younger students in kindergarten and first grade share multiple computer carts with new tablets for technology exploration!

A Different Approach to Learning

At SPAE, students are given the opportunity to learn in an interactive, student-centered atmosphere using project-based learning. This approach has students acquire knowledge and skills through working on a project by investigating and responding to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. Students show what they learn as they journey through a unit – not just an end test. In our student-centered classrooms, teachers are facilitators who help support a higher level of student engagement and collaboration.

After School Programs

Offerings vary by semester but have included:

  1. VEX Robotics Club
  2. Karate by East Mesa Karate
  3. Kinetic Kids by Kinetic Fitness
  4. Spanish by ABSi Spanish
  5. Chess Club by AZ Chess Central
  6. Green Team
  7. Student Council
  8. Tumbling

Lunch

Our school participates in the National School Lunch Program which allows students to buy school lunch at a reduced or free rate if they qualify. Students are welcome to bring lunch from home or buy lunch in our school cafeteria.
