• Sierra Verde STEAM Academy students use the Engineering Design Process and work collaboratively in an inquiry-based learning environment that encourages finding creative solutions to real world problems. Our partnership with families and the community provides a supportive environment with high academic standards dedicated to maximizing critical thinking, innovation, productive  struggle, and collaboration to drive learning and problem solving. For the 2019-2020 School year, Sierra Verde will be using the theme of “Conservation” to guide our STEAM focus. All our stakeholders will be working towards the essential question “How do we conserve at Sierra Verde?”
