STEM Program
Our STEM program is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Through this program, children become equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. Check our STEM page to see what our children do.
Pre-School Program
We are pleased to announce the good news of our expansion of adding a Preschool program for three and four year old children. It is considered to be the first step in the Early Childhood level of the Elementary School. Providing developmentally appropriate practices that match the way three and four years old learn will provide a positive effect on the academic growth of the students. We look forward to having “GSA Little Lambs” joining our “GSA Big Sheep!” Click More for details.
