Foreign Language Immersion- Studies have shown that bilingual students perform better than monolingual students in tasks that call for creative thinking, pattern recognition and problem solving.
Ecological Greenhouse - Gives students the opportunity to explore the plants and animals that make up their world.
Scholarships - GRemoves financial barriers allowing deserving students an oppotunity to experience a STEM education.
Planning for the Future with:
Portsmouth STEM Academy is dedicated to educating and mentoring Scioto County's future innovators and leaders.
We offer a robust curriculum in science, technology, engineering, and math, while still providing a full program in liberal arts, international cultures, and foreign language (Spanish and Mandarin).
We believe children deserve a learning center focused on their intellectual, emotional, and physical needs, not those of adults. Schools should be exciting worlds of exploration, guiding students through what they need to know, and encouraging them to excel in the realms that most appeal to them individually.
We believe in learning by coaching, hands-on practice, and experimentation.
We provide a collaborative, open-classroom environment, with learning groups based on student achievement levels within each course of study. Every student should work at their level of understanding, whether above or below their grade in different content areas.
We foster student collaboration and mentorship through long-term group projects and student-led activities.
We operate on a year-round schedule, coinciding with the Shawnee State University academic calendar. Fall and Winter terms are supplemented with a unique and fun Summer term that blends enrichment and special projects, including travel to age-appropriate sports, music, fine and performing arts, science fair projects, tech camps, and more.
