At E-STEM Middle School, we focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – all through environmental education. Situated on the Saint Paul-Woodbury border, E-STEM magnet school offers students opportunities to explore the amazing natural environment around them. A nearby pond and hiking trail serve as an extension of the classroom, where students can put what they learn into practice. Our teachers use technology to help students communicate with math as the language, and science and engineering as the process for critical thinking skills. For the 2019-20 school year, E-STEM Middle School will serve grade 6 with expansion to grades 7 and 8 in subsequent years. SPPS will define the middle school’s final name by fall 2019. Read More...
COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines
SPPS will require masks for all people in a school setting (ages 2+), including all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Families should familiarize themselves with the SPPS COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines, which are updated regularly and cover prevention strategies, health screening and monitoring, and the SPPS COVID-19 Reporting System.
Foundations is an advisory class to help ease the transition for students from elementary to middle school. This class is designed to build community, establish a strong support system and teach school expectations. Foundations is taught by one of the student’s core teachers from their team.
Students also have opportunities to experience exploratory classes. Exploratory classes help middle school students gain skills, have fun and pursue their interests. Depending on the daily schedule, students may have opportunities for a different number of exploratory classes each semester/school year.
