Vanderlyn is AdvancED STEM Certified
This is an announcement from Principal Crenshaw:
It is my distinct honor and pleasure to announce that Vanderlyn Elementary has earned AdvancED STEM certification! To secure such a prestigious, international distinction, STEM has to be embraced as an integrated, inquiry-based approach that incorporates at a minimum, the four disciplines: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through an extremely rigorous process, schools must demonstrate authentic, effective, and sustainable practices that meet the needs of all learners. Vanderlyn, through long-term and strategic collaborative planning, submitted itself to the stringent STEM process. We cultivated our practices, honed our teaching methods, broadened our curriculum, and improved student learning outcomes, thus, capturing the prominence of AdvancED STEM certification!
