“It’s really amazing how seamlessly art can fit into a STEM curriculum.”
–Jacie Moore, Art Facilitator at Academy High School, Plano ISD
The vast majority of students in Texas attend public schools (Texas Student Enrollment Data.) Every day, more and more of those public school students are enjoying a variety of options when it comes to curriculum.
Charging full steam ahead with this idea is Plano ISD’s Academy High School. It’s the district’s first school of choice where leaders have fully bought into the expanding idea that incorporating art into the established set of STEM (science, tech, engineering, and math) disciplines makes for more well-rounded students. The movement is called STEAM and it’s a quarter of what makes this remarkable campus so unique.
